  • Synopsis/Summary/Review: 

    Takeshi Kitano's 'Dolls crosses between dream like and highly stylized realism, the film opens in the traditional bunraku doll theater and then cross-cuts between three modern love-tragedies - a daring tragic triptych on the nature of unrequited love and abandonment - which span the four seasons and cover much of Japan. While paying homage to the art form, Kitano effectively creates the exact reverse of bunraku: a selection of human emotional disasters as a doll might see them.
