    Kwaidan

    ★★★★½

    Colours whirling in a glass full water. Eyes in the sky, surrounded by wild brush strokes. The snow is falling silently, but never stops. The sound of a foreign, far away instrument. A broken promise. A cup of tea that attracts attention. A never ending love, and a night to remember. The feeling of unease, of shiver, of eerie.
