Synopsis

A young man awakens in the hospital after an accident wipes his memory. Fascinated by a textbook full of drawings of dissections, Hiroshi is drawn to a medical school where he catches the eye of a fellow student. But it’s another who becomes his obsession… the dead woman on the cadaver table.

MUBI's take

Inspired by medical sketches of dissections, Shinya Tsukamoto (Tetsuo) transforms the excesses of body horror into an imaginative story of the relationship between identity and the human body. Giving life to a sober subject, actor Tadanobu Asano tenderly embodies the disorientation of an amnesiac.
