Audition (NSFW) (Gore)

30 07 2009

Audition, a Takashi Miike movie (also author of equally gory Koroshiya Ichi), is among the new school japanese movies which are considered by some, the most disturbing movies around.

The actual story isn’t bad: It’s about a middle aged widower looking for a new wife, which ends up posing a supposed “audition” for a movie with the help of his son, with the true purpose of finding this new wife for him.
The story then evolves when he finds one “perfect” japanese wife, and only after sometime starts finding out bits and pieces of her past, which will reveal her true personality.
The graphical situations portrayed in the movie, including torture, dismemberment, and sexual content makes it too strong for most people.
Summary: If you were shaken by movies like Saw or Hostel, keep your distance from Takashi Miike movies because they make these two look like a ride in the park. 😛
