Liza’s a lonely nurse whose search for a companion always ends in the same way— with the death of her suitor. Now the bodies are piling up and Liza, whose only friend is the ghost of a 1950s Japanese pop singer, is coming under the suspicion of a bumbling detective. Reminiscent of both Amélie and Takashi Miike’s The Happiness of the Katakuris, Mészáros blends whimsy, death, Japanese lore, and catchy pop songs into a delightfully dark cocktail. “Rarely has grisly death been packaged in such adorable wrapping.”—Film School Rejects. (98 mins.)
