Review: Inspired by traditional Japanese Bunraku doll theater, "Dolls" is an unforgettable movie. Their scenes are beautiful, colorful by red, gold, pink cherry blossoms and white from the snow. The movie is narrated through the seasons and through the main characters that walk tied by a long red rope. There are a few dialogues in this movie but their expressions and movements tell us the drama and show a sensibility of Japanese movies. Their three stories seem a little disconnected but their plot are all the same: love and madness together, giving us a distressing view of these two feelings.
