Kaojikara

General info
Original title: Kaojikara
Country: France
Year: 2007
IMDB Rating:
Plot: A young Japanese woman living in a western country wakes up one morning and realises that her boyfriend has undergone a strange transformation - his face has disappeared and in it’s place now is a blurry and deformed mass of flesh. After barely escaping her home, she begins to realise that she might have been the only one to escape this strange mutation.

Kaojikara is an experience for the senses. It evolves around the themes of loneliness and alienation induced by cultural differences. For this film we have chosen the means of the imaginary metaphor – instead of the classic storytelling techniques - in order to give the viewer the possibility to “feel” the story.

In order to give our audience a feeling of uncharacteristic intensity, Kaojikara was filmed in Japanese, given a fast and ever evolving pace, alternating between colour and black and white photography, with over 200 shots of special effects and given a very specific and complex soundtrack.

You can watch Eric Dinkian’s short film Kaojikara in its entirety on the film's official website [www.kaojikara.com]. Do not miss funny machinimas that illustrates story from different angles.

Originally this short independent movie was included as a bonus feature on the French DVD release of Shinya Tsukamoto’s Nightmare Detective (Akumu Tantei).

SaruDama, by mongip source: http://www.sarudama.com/japanese_movies/kaojikara.shtml
«Issues of cultural alienation and the simultaneous loss and preservation of identity are explored in this short international film. This is an small independent, almost underground production which nevertheless carries a very clear and effective visual message.»
