    Just wondering if anyone else here has seen the film Welcome to the Quiet Room. I don't think it's very well known but it is one of my favourite Japanese movies.

    Basically, it starts with a woman waking up in a mental hospital after apparently overdosing on sleeping pills. The story goes back and forth between what's happening in the ward and flashbacks of everything leading up to the OD. Though a lot of the subject matter is fairly serious the movie doesn't get too bogged down being overly "heavy" and I really laughed out loud at a few scenes. It's a quirky, funny, touching and meaningful (at least to me) bit of film. Also has Shinya Tsukamoto in a small role... OK, his part is really pretty small but I just love that guy ^_^

    Just curious what anyone else thinks about it. Or, if you haven't seen it it's definitely one I would recommend if you're not in the mood for something too extreme.
