Dark passage (Senkou-sha 潜行者) - Director : Delmer Daves - 1947 - Japanese posterThe big sleep (Mittsukazoero 三つ数えろ) - Director : Howard Hawks - 1946 - Japanese posters
"Nestled in the hidden valleys of Shikoku, Japan, is the village of Nagoro. Its remote location has led its residents to leave for big cities in search for work. With not even a local store, there’s little reason for immigration, so as residents die there is no one left to fill their void. Nagoro is slowly shrinking.
Eleven years ago, Ayano Tsukimi returned to her home in Nagoro. Confronted with constant departures, she has populated the village with dolls, each representing a former villager. Around 350 of the giant dolls now reside in and around Nagoro, replacing those that died or abandoned the village years ago.”
Does anyone else think this is a horror movie waiting to happen?
