    Hm, this does sound very interesting. Someone tell me if it's worth it! I have a ton of DVD's on their way to me via mail, so buying it right now is not possible :(

    This is probably thee tamest Takashi Miike film available

    That said it is still possibly my favorite

    Their is probably two violent scenes in the entire movie and they wouldn't combine for 5 minutes even


    Get it if you want to see an artier side of Miike but don't expect to see people flying around the entire movie.

    Oh yea it's got Mako(Wizard in Conan)

    --LOL-- Get it if you want a story rather than gore? I'm onboard :) Did anyone expect a film called "The Birds People in China" to be gory? :lol:

    I just say that because after movies like Ichi,Audition and others gore is what ppl might expect from the director


    Oh yea that version that is linked is a bootleg and not official just FYI

    It's a fucking wonderful film!!! It's got pretty decent rewatch value too. Yeah, just don't expect typical Miike violence.
