Mouryou no Hako

Japanese: 魍魎の匣 (2007)

English: The Mouryo’s Box

Famous anime’ title but less well-known as an Abe Hiroshi film (live action). Mystery-crime genre, tinge of “The Mentalist” with the ick factor – girl’s limbs hidden on boxes. Supposed to be a film-de-noir so I was expecting something like the ‘Shikeidai no erebeta‘ but I was disappointed of the slow pace and too much concoction mixed into a single plot.

I may be a bit too harsh but if you love this novel, I do recommend that you watch the anime’ instead.
