Director's intention


This film explores how a lonely and emotionally insecure teenager finds the love she demands online and nearly pays for it with her life, at the hands of a serial killer.

This is Cica Oyama’s first full-length film.

Her film expresses the pressures of the contemporary world and its dark areas where uncontrolled fantasy can become dreadful reality.

Oyama’s film is poetic and laden with metaphors of isolation and alienation.

This film is a collection of poetic expressions that reflects the story of Sisyphus pushing a boulder uphill.

Such scenes are: paddling alone and seemingly forever in a boat;

this father carrying a heavy family on his shoulder; sisters working in the field with labored breathing inplys subminal of their mind.

I am drawn to the poetic rhythm of breathing. The beauty of repetition.

I use little every day objects to focus attention to this motif.

Plus I use the mobile phone to symbolize modern people and the way they travel through life with their eyes looking down all the time.

Oyama says since she felt more for moving images, she started to make movement of motives.

She felt she had more to say.

This film `Suicide love` was made form her subminal images from her own thought and images of her experiences.

althogh I wanted express today`s life. The life today is not symple and easy says Oyama.

I find family is the source (base)of entire world of a person.

How a person achieve happiness if her family is disaster or disfunctionbal?

I am aiming more of family stories

I find family is the source (base)of entire world of a person.

How a person achieve happiness if her family is disaster or disfunctionbal? I am aiming more of family stories and achieve more and more.

Because no one can chose family where she (he) can be born.

No one can not choose the environment in where she (he) would be born, because she (he) is not born with her(him) chosen.

This movie is symbolizing intense internal energy among the reticence of the Japanese. As rhythm of Noh play expresses daily life indiscriminately and finally it is based on the rhythm that inner energy explore.

Japanese who loves "transience" like love cherry blossoms.

In fact over 33.000 Japanese people commit suicide every year.

A young man shouting to the air "I love you". this sound is like "I want you to love me.”” Love me, love me, love me”

A girl who pursues love by choosing "death" for "wanting to be loved by family".

This guy and girl get to know each other on the internet, they cut wrist even without knowing their real names, and they die.

I describe this film pure images beauty and human breathing Indiscreetly.
