Lament of the Lamb (Hitsuji no Uta-2002)

Hitsuji no Uta
Natsuki Kato~Chizuna Takashiro
Minami~You Yaegashi
Shun Oguri~Kazuna Takashiro
Kazuma Suzuki~Doctor Minase

Ever since his mother died, Kazuna Takashiro has been living under the roof of Mr. And Mrs. Eda, who are his father's friends. One day, he passes out while working as a model in an art class. Repeated nightmarish imageries invade his mind, and without even knowing, he heads toward his old home.

Once he gets there, he is reunited with his older sister, Chizuna, who tells him about the secret of the grave "illness" that runs in their family. An illness that make them overcome with a desire for blood of others.

When Kazuna's symptoms are all apparent with shivering fit and all, Chizuna tries to give him her own blood, and remarks that nothing can be done about it...

Okay, this movie totally wigged me out. I don't think I liked this. Oguri Shun rocked as usual but he couldn't keep this movie afloat. I know this was a manga/anime. I don't think I would have liked those either. God forbid. Some serious incestual undertones near the end. The complete ending made no sense either. What the ......? It started out really interesting then just couldn't keep my interest as the plot of the story couldn't come together. The movie was sort of slow but that didn't bother me at all it was just the story line.

If you watch this movie, you must be in some really dire need of the Shun-kun. Other than that...this movie wasn't worth a Mexican peso. Sorry..................
