Product Description

Alex Fayard, a successful crime novel author, has been invited to Japan for the release of his latest book. One night, he encounters Tamao, a geisha, who confides to him her fears. One of her former lovers, who may well be Shundei Oe, a novelist famous for his extremely violent and disturbing books, is threatening to kill her. Fayard, an Oe specialist, agrees to help her and finds himself pitted against a man who turns his trip into a bloody investigation where fiction becomes indistinguishable from reality.

A stylish thriller...the protagonist fancies himself as a amateur psychologist who has insights into the mind of the "villain" just because he has studied and lectured on the literature of the miscreant...in his hubris he arrogantly assumes that even though he is French he knows the mind and psyche of his Japanese antagonist...the fallout is spectacular.......the movie is well filmed and held my attention to the very end...the denouement was unexpected..I found the "bath house scene " tastefully filmed and incredibly erotic...not for what it actually showed but what it suggested..I got hooked..well worth seeing in my opinion

4.0 out of 5 stars exciting thriller March 2 2011
A very enjoyable and suspenseful thriller that keeps you guessing right until the end. I am a big fan of Benoit Magimel which is what attracted me to the movie. He is great in this film and looks gorgeous as usual. Any Benoit fan will not be disappointed. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great instance of Japanese horror Jan. 11 2011
"Inju", a film based on writings of Edogawa Rampo, is an amazing horror film. Coming from me, someone who detests the genre, it's a great compliment. It keeps you on the edge from the very beginning till the very end, showing the kind of evil only Japanese mentality could ever create, the evil for which the human life has no value at all. Usually, horror films are just silly. This one is one of very few quality examples.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great first hour... Aug. 29 2009
This is one of the best-looking films I've seen this year and the opening sequence is inspired. The intriguing, if far-fetched premise makes for gripping viewing initially and the theme of stories, storytellers and the blurring of reality and fiction is undeniably thought-provoking.

Alas, the plot holes become ever more evident and the film falters with the introduction of a new major character. The climactic revelation plays reasonably fair with the viewer but does not live up to the initial mystery. Overall, the film is well worth seeing but it could have been outstanding with a stronger third act.
