Audience Reviews for Face
This film shows senseless murder, shows suicides and shows a woman enjoying being raped. It's not pleasant, not funny and I have a difficult time understanding why anyone likes it.
[img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/movie/coverv/12/250412.jpg[/img]The story of a socially awkward seamstress and her unexpected, darkly humorous journey, FACE brought international attention to its innovative director, Junji Sakamoto, and to Naomi Fujiyama, a Japanese stage actress making her searing film debut. Fujiyama plays Masako, whose unhappy life is turned upside down by a series of tragic occurrences in her family. She becomes a fugitive, but her odyssey through the Japanese countryside--marked by unexpected twists and fascinating characters--proves strangely liberating. [b]Lead actress Naomi Fujiyama gives one of the most powerful & effective performances in any movie I've seen. Very moving, at times darkly humurous story of this woman's life on the run after killing her mean sister. I really felt for this woman, and she gives a commanding performance that evokes a lot of sympathy. Highly recommended.[/b] :fresh: :fresh: :fresh: :fresh: :fresh: :fresh: :fresh:
