Review

A beautiful forest greets the viewers at the beginning of the film. One person enters the forest, and suddenly there is the universe (LCD screens that show the universe), where two stars begin a conversation. One star says to the other that it went down to Tokyo and saw an independent film titled ''The Balloon'', which was great. ''The Balloon'' is actually the previous film made by NAKAO Hiromichi, the director of ''OBAKE''. As the two stars look down on him, they talk complain about his production methods and talk about his private life. ''OBAKE'' is one of the most unique “films about making films.” This is a making film of ''OBAKE'' and also the filmmaker’s resume about his own filmmaking methods. Through the stars’ conversation, the director mocks his own life and comforts himself. In the latter part of the film, NAKAO destroys the universe and the stars he created and aims to stop making films. However, emotions rush at the viewers abruptly when the director takes up the camera and walks out into the forest once again. [MOON Seok]
