- Exte: Hair Extensions review by Drumhum
There is certainly "something" about this film. It's great how the hair takes on a character of it's own. The crazy premiss somehow works.
What really p***** me off is the terrible subtitled translation. I can't speak Japanese but I can sure tell it's a rotten translation. I just don't understand how such translations get made. It kills the film.
Recommended? No. Unless you speak Japanese.
It takes far too much interpretaion to properly engage. And as good as the film is, it's not good enough to be worthy of the effort.
Don't rent this on a whim. If you know what you want and know what you're getting then you may well enjoy it.
