Just came back from the movie theater. I saw the trailer for Signal yesterday and thought that it might be creepy fun. Nissy and Kengo were also acting in the film so I couldn't NOT go.
Our love triangle consists of the cheerful and lovestruck Keisuke (Nissy), the enigmatic Ruka (Azusa), and the obsessive Reiji (Kengo).
The setting takes place in an old movie theater. Keisuke, a college student, decides to work at the movie theater. The manager tells him that there are three rules he must follow.
1. Do not ask the owner about her injuries.
2. Do not ask about her personal problems.
3. Do not start a relationship with her.
Keisuke is dumbstruck when he meets the owner of the theater: she's his age, maybe younger and she's beautiful.
The storytelling is not strong, but I loved the incorporation of old film and how the theater tied Keisuke and Ruka together. Their scenes together, though muted by Ruka's lack of emotion, are buoyed by the warm colors and security of the theater.
