Day 7 started with a swap. I had originally planned to see L'Affaire SK1 which was a procedural about a French serial killer, but was instead persuaded to see this Jeunet-esque Hungarian film about... trying to explain the plot kind of hurts my brain.
There's a bunch of stuff in this movie but, at its heart, it's a romantic comedy. Not in the Hollywood sense of that term, but still. There's a ghost of a Japanese pop star who kills people in interesting ways, an odd duck police detective, plenty of colorful characters and a semi-surreal world in a faintly Amelie way. In some ways, it's like Amelie meets Delicatessen.
Anyway, I liked this one. Of all the films I feel like the still for this in the program book was the most misleading. It's taken from a goddamn dream sequence in the film and doesn't look anything like the rest of the movie. I'm glad people said it's good but if I had seen a trailer or spent more time studying the films on the schedule I might have given this more interest from the beginning.
