Film information

Story: Triple bill of Asian horror films. In 'Audition' (2001), seven years after the death of his wife, Shigeharu Aoyama (Ryo Ishibashi) decides it is time to remarry. A friend suggests that he might seek out potential spouses by holding auditions for a non-existent video project, and this leads him to meet Asami Yamasaki (Eihi Shiina), a 24-year-old dancer who captivates him immediately. Aoyama begins seeing her on a regular basis, and thinks that she really might be the woman for him, but his friend Yoshikawa (Jun Kunimura) becomes suspicious, and after some investigation discovers the young woman is not at all who she claims to be. In 'Dark Water' (2002) Hitomi Kuroki stars as Yoshimi, a recently-divorced working mother with a history of mental imbalance. Having won the custody battle for her five-year-old daughter, Ikuko (Rio Kanno), she moves with her into a new apartment. But it isn't long before strange occurrences begin: the ceiling leaks incessantly - and when the ghost of a small girl in a yellow dress starts to appear around the place, Yoshimi's already precarious grip on her sanity gives way completely. Finally, in 'The Eye' (2002), having been blind since the age of two, 20-year-old Mun decides to undergo a risky corneal transplant operation. When the bandages come off, the operation seems to have been successful, but Mun begins to experience unnerving visions of mysterious strangers and it soon transpires that the face she is seeing in the mirror is not her own. Desperate to escape from this nightmare, Mun sets out to discover the identity of the person through whose eyes she is now viewing the world.
