Mangekyo (Kaleidescope). 1999. Japan. Directed by Naomi Kawase. With Arimoto Shinya, Ono Machiko, Mifune Mika, Naomi Kawase. In Japanese; English subtitles. 90 min.
A photographer (Machiko) and a filmmaker (Kawase) challenge each other to shoot—one to photograph the other to film—two young actresses, one from Tokyo, the other from the countryside. The photographer seeks naturalism in his compositions, and Kawase observes and comments on his work. The competition between the photographer, the filmmaker, and the actresses creates a charged atmosphere.
