There is this Japanese movie I saw a few years back "Kwaidan". The second picture reminds me of a segment in the movie called "The woman of the snow"Brilliant snap
I'm definitely watching the movie...just because it Japanese:-p
Always glad to find a fellow Nipponphiliac. Be warned though, Kwaidan is a horror movie. I would also recommend watching Okuribito
i had to cover the pic in the wiki info while reading bout the movie:-P.I shall watch both gladly.
