ABOUT THE FILM

What is “ego,” this invisible force that makes men so cruel and that paints such ugly expressions on the human face? This work violently depicts the “anti-capital punishment” message in an effort to make the viewer reflect on this issue.

I wonder if Nasija lived an unhappy life or not. I think most people think she is a sad lonely woman. But for me, she always looked calm and accepted everything analyzing her life. Very good movie.

Such an impressive and strong story-telling. I felt each color expresses its own nature very well.

I wish Nasija would know who would love her as she is, and who could proudly stand beside her..... Very sad but nice film !

I didn't like most of the men in this film. They are so cruel and brutal and sad. But I liked the film itself though it's shocking. Good story-telling !

I think the director is very observant. The images are eye-catching though sometimes a bit shocking, and the story-telling is nice and well-structured !

I felt that it depicts cruelty of capital punishment via Nasija's life very well. I think using colors is also a nice idea. Very good film !

強いメッセージです。こうやって行われている現実が自分たち一人一人が気がつき変えていかなければ、ならない姿なのでないでしょうか?!This is strong message!We dont want to it If we are !

主人公の感情と一体化する事を目指したかのような映像の構成 がテーマと直結していて素晴らしいです。

I love black, but if black is defined as a color without light, I don't want anyone to live a black life like Nasija. Everybody needs light. Very shocking but a nice film.
