Description

Peculiar, captivating and 100% unique, this may be the strangest film you see this year -- and the most delightful. Drenched in bright colors and blessed with a lively visual wit, the blackly comic story centers on lonely nurse Liza, who has spent the past 12 years taking care of Marta, the widow of Hungary’s former Japanese ambassador. Liza’s only friend is the ghost of a Japanese pop singer, Tomy Tani, whom only she can see. But the dapper Tomy has a malicious plan to keep Liza all to himself.
