I've never seen films of this Japanese director, this is the first that I play back and, paradoxically, one of the last to have been directed by Kaneto Shindo And a very peculiar black comedy, the situations are quite idiotic, but then towards the last twenty minutes this film going to end up on the drama and some also on the thriller., Owl is a little that repeats, on the other hand the film is always based on the same device and is filmed only ever on a ambiance thus giving a theatrical cut but that nevertheless never leads the viewer boredom simply because the beautiful protagonists (who the mother and daughter, two friends seem to) know how to keep up the interest of the film.

Taking up the argument of 'Onibaba' (1964), the nonagenarian Director Kaneto Shindo places the action in the eighties: a mother and her daughter are mired in the deepest misery, eating only pine roots. To get out of poverty both shall exercise at home as geisha, but at the same time they will poison men who go parading around to take their money. The mechanism used is always the same: as a gift to the victim, they offered a glass of sake that, once ingested, makes them foam at the mouth uttering animal howls and dying in convulsions. —jsanchez
