Suicide DVD

Infection

Our company mainly produced

TV programs...

on gourmet dining and local events

for cable TV networks.

Mr. Suzuki, is there anything

wrong with the camera?

I did a sound check.

There was some background noise.

Sir, something strange

arrived in the mail.

What?

It looks like a video.

What is it?

The letter attached says if

you watch it you'll die.

They probably sent it

to the wrong place.

We do gourmet shows.

That's for companies working in

horror and supernatural.

Check the address.

It is addressed to us.

Look at the DVD.

The packaging is really weird.

These used to be kind of popular.

There were letters and stuff

that brought bad luck.

I'm not interested.

It doesn't have anything

to do with our company.

Can I have it?

You like horror?

Yes.

I was going to throw it away

anyhow, so go ahead.

Why don't you produce

a report on it?

I'll lend you a camera.

It's about time you learned how to

put together a proper report.

It will be good practice for you.

Got it.

What kind of a report

do you want?

Do it like a gourmet dining report!

Like a gourmet report...?

That was the last time I

ever saw her alive.

I never thought she'd

actually die.

She said that she wanted to see it,

so I told her to write a report.

I really didn't give the matter much thought.

I feel absolutely terrible about the whole thing.

The police report chalked it up to suicide.

She jumped off the balcony of her

apartment of her own free will.

She didn't leave a note,

so we were all interviewed by the police,

but there was no evidence

any crime was committed.

Another woman commits suicide

It happened suddenly.

Kayo's parents came to Tokyo to retrieve

her body for the funeral.

Her parents thanked us for keeping

her on at the company,

but this only served to prick

our consciences.

The police asked if there was

anything I could think of.

I immediately thought of the video,

but I was sure they would

dismiss me as a fool.

Besides, I was the one who let her

have it in the first place.

I wanted to protect myself. Our cameraman,

Suzuki, apparently felt the same way.

I never thought it would

turn out like this.

I thought the director should take

responsibility for the DVD.

To be honest, I was scared.

You want me to tape this, right?

Tape absolutely everything.

Keep the sound on too.

We don't have an assistant director anymore.

This will serve as a record.

Hello, we met the other day...

Yes Actually, we lent your daughter

the company's camera

With the rest of her belongings?

Yes I see

I understand

If that's the case,

I'll go pick it up

Yes, I'm sorry to have

bothered you yes, goodbye.

What did they say?

It's still in her apartment.

Her stuff has to be out by the

49th day after her death.

They'll contact the landlord

to let us in.

We went to pick up the DVD.

We were curious what was on it.

But at the bottom of our hearts,

we may also have figured...

we could hide something that proved

our complicity in her death.

She was a fairly tidy person.

It's easy to tell she would have made

a good wife for someone.

And she was only 23 years old.

It's too young.

What are we doing here?

Let's get out of here.

She's dead, there's nothing we can

learn that will change that.

If I had only been more careful

Then, you believe it?

It's because I don't believe it.

Finding the DVD will prove that it

had nothing to do with her death.

I can't just let this go.

If we don't get to the bottom of this,

her soul won't be able to rest.

It's the DVD.

Shozin Fukui

Shozin Fukui (福居ショウジン, Fukui Shōjin) is a Japanese film director and screenwriter. He has produced two experimental shorts (Gerorisuto, and Caterpillar) and two full-length films (964 Pinocchio, and Rubber's Lover). These four movies were widely available, having been issued on DVD by Unearthed Films. However, these releases have since gone out of print. He has released four more films since then (Onne, Den-Sen, The Hiding and 『S-94』). These are almost completely unknown outside Japan. 964 Pinocchio and Rubber's Lover are considered important, core films of the Japanese cyberpunk genre.964 Pinocchio is often compared to Shinya Tsukamoto's cyberpunk classic Tetsuo: The Iron Man; Fukui worked on the crew for Tetsuo. Many fans and critics consider Fukui's aesthetic to be sufficiently divergent from Tsukamoto's for his films to stand on their own, even considering the extremely deep similarities. more…
