Survival Style 5+

This is a Japanese comedy film. This movie is extremely hilarious and entertaining. There are very few comedies with such intelligent scripts. There are five stories running in parallel and characters from each one of them somehow affect the lives of others. 


I think you will love watching the first story in particular. This story reminds me of Vikram-Betaal sagas from Indian fiction. There was a king named Vikram and there was a spirit called Betaal. Every time Vikram kills the spirit it comes back to him. Similarly, in the first story of this film-there is a woman who beats her husband and his husband somehow manages to kill her and he buries her only to soon find that his wife is waiting to kick him again at his home! This keeps going on and on with manners of execution changing every time and this makes for an extremely hilarious story which has a air of horror mystery as well. Rest of the stories are also intriguing...some more than others and I don't want to spoil them for you. 



I would give this movie 8 out of 10. It's very enjoyable.
