My dead sister (who according to the script is much prettier than I am) got into the bath, where I am relaxing after my father (who I had surprised stroking her black hair whilst sweating like a pig) whacked me with a copper cable simply because it seems a bit strange to me that she is alive again after an immense steel bar went through her body (in this edition of the Festival this is not the only family that think it's logical that their dead kids come back from the Other Side). Dad will end up stabbing my dead sister, which will not prevent her from trying to steal my boyfriend who, after all, used to be hers. Oh yes and we're Japanese schoolgirls dressed as Japanese schoolgirls, playing the characters based on the legendary manga by Junji Ito. Elegantly directed by Noboru Iguchi, a gentleman with many registers. Remember that he made The Machine Girl and that he has also presented the story of the Mazinger Z motorbike at the Festival. I'm off. My sister has just eaten my friend.
