Plot – Spoilers:
Shigeharu Aoyama (Ryo Ishibashi) is a widower who is getting old and feeling the effects of loneliness as his teenage son appears to be moving on with his life. He confides in his friend Yoshikawa (Jun Kunimura) who is well known in the film industry. Yoshikawa arranges a bizarre audition wherein young beautiful women are called up ostensibly for a movie part, but the actual purpose of the audition is to find Aoyama a life partner. Aoyama goes along with the plan and is soon smitten by a very graceful and submissive looking Asami Yamazaki (Eihi Shiina).

Yoshikawa is a bit suspicious of her because her references don’t appear to check out, but by now, Aoyama is too far gone in his love for the mysterious Asami. What he finds in Asami to his horrid surprise is a twisted maniacal psychopath who grew up experiencing brutality and sadism as a child and who has now morphed into a serial killer of men with an extremely sadistic penchant for torture that she has honed across her many killings.

Favorite scenes:
During the Auditions, when Aoyama first catches a glimpse of Asami, she has her back to him in a crowded room and yet soemthing about the scene conveys her poise and grace that has Aoyama absolutely smitten.

The pathetic man squirming around in the sack. He has lost all sense and dignity of a human being and has debased into an animal that only craves for survival and nourishment.

Obviously the torture scenes. They come as such a stark and shocking contrast to all the feminine grace and poise exhibited by Asami until then. Especially when she injects Aoyama with a drug that paralyzes him but leaves with the sensation of pain – brutal.

This movie helped me find this website so, thanks! It starts with a very slow and winding build up and eventually ends in the iconic and chaotic last couple of minutes. I can tell this movie has a lot of symbology and replay value, but my socks were not completely blown off on my first viewing. It is still an excellent movie and a must watch, just the first impression didn’t have me starstruck.

First Impression: 7.4

I thought this was a very good movie and I can’t understand the vitreole of that Bill guy. This is a Awsome site, occasionally the movies stop and buffer. I just go back thirty seconds, play for 5 seconds, then go forward 30 seconds. This nearly always resolves the problem and I am just streaming to my telly from my iPad. As I said Awsome site, I would like to suggest a star rating system for each movie, or maybe bloody knives instead of stars,lol. I really love the site and thankyou?

Really a wonderful site. I have watched the Audition movie from your site only because of the resolution and continuous streaming without any interruption. As the first man said, I found your website only when I am searching google to try this movie for seeing through online with english subtitles. Kudos to everyone who are maintaining this website. Keep it up. I request you to add more such award won movies.

Sad movie where nobody wins. He genuinely loves this girl for her mature outlook on life but she’s too caught up in revenge to see his true intentions.

Might have been more intriguing if the son never came home to stop her and right on his last breath Aoyama says “Asami, I loved you.” It could open the possibility for a redemption story. Still a good watch though.

Love your website, but wanted to comment re- buffering on laptops versus desktops.
I find that the desktop works best and the movies play on first click. On my Ipad I have to buggerise around 3-4 times before it starts to play. I go from option 1 – nothing, then 2 which takes me to some weird unrelated site and so on. Eventually it plays but not before I’ve wasted 5-10 minutes going backwards and forwards. I prefer it via my desktop as it works first time round. Why? I don’t know. If anyone knows please inform us. Oh and for some reason trying to watch it on TV via the HDMI connection no longer works. It did last week. BUt this week? Nada. Zilch. Blank screen. Thanks.

the most feminist movie I’ve seen by far, I personally see it as the uncovering of women’ traumas from relationships. beautiful shots filled with loneliness that we all inherit from childhood.
thank you, effedup, for the ability to find more movies like this <з

Hello EUM community <3 We missed u alot. After a long hiatus, the pussybitch lads are back and stronger than ever. We even had a gril watching this movie with us 2nite, can u believe? Anyways, feelings about the movie were mixed. Favorite scene was the kick down the stairs, that was really badass. And when the gril tried to spray the kid with 1 million perfume, that was very lol. Alright, thats enough for today, hope u enjoyed this review. Leave a comment below.
XOXO
