I can always depend on Japan for an interesting and disturbing storyline. I have known about this movie for awhile and decided to finally check it out for myself. The disturbing thing isn't the mass suicides but the joyful music that joins them. This movie proves how crazy and messed up humanity can be. There is more to this movie than just people killing themselves. That alone makes this so captivating. The death scenes are disturbing, intense, and at times completely unexpected. I don't get the point of the musical number other than for the actor (who is actually a singer) to do what he is known for. I had a feeling what the big twist was, but the way it was revealed was well done. There are a few scenes that I didn't see coming. It's a really strange film that doesn't really make a lot of sense. The ending was a little odd. It's definitely not something for weak stomachs. I can't say I would recommend this one. As most Japanese films this one doesn't make much sense.
