What ‘Greta’ Is About

A young waitress named Frances McCullen lives with her friend and roommate in New York City while she was still grieving over the death of her mother one year prior. At the same time, she is maintaining a strained relationship with her workaholic father, Chris.

Greta and Frances’s story starts when Frances found a green handbag on a subway train. She figured out that the handbag belongs to Greta by the ID left inside. She then went to Greta’s house to return the handbag when Greta invited her inside for a cup of coffee.

Ever since then, they grew closer to each other. Frances keeps Greta accompany because she told her that she is a widow and her daughter is studying in Paris. Erica was against their relationship because to her, it seems ‘unnatural’. Things started to go downhill when Frances was at Greta’s home for dinner when she found a closet full of multiple handbags, the same as the one she returned to Greta.

Frances decided to cut ties with Greta as she feels disturbed by the things she saw but Greta would not leave her alone as she saw herself as a replacement for Frances’s mother. This cat-and-mouse story leaves the audience tense in their seats, waiting to see if Frances can get away from Greta or vice versa.

What Can Be Said About ‘Greta’

The plot of this film is enough to make it one of the best horror thriller movies but with the combination of veteran French actress, Isabelle Huppert and young American actress, Chloë Grace Moretz’s terrifying performances, this movie managed to get high ratings and good reviews.

It is not the lightest sinister movie you’ll ever see but it is also not the darkest. Safe to say that this movie stays in between and it is a definitely recommend kind of film.

(Video) ‘Nagoro Doll Village’, A Mysterious Village Full With Dolls!

Published

on

Nagoro or now known as Nagoro Doll Village is a village in the Iya Valley on the island of Shikoku in Tokushima Prefecture, Japan. It is known for the large number of realistic dolls positioned throughout the village, which have made it a tourist attraction. The village is located on Route 439 in the Iya Valley, a remote mountainous area. It formerly had about 300 inhabitants, but the decline in Japan’s population has caused that to fall to 35 by January 2015, 30 as of August 2016, and also 27 by September 2019.

At first glance, most visitors to Nagoro Doll Village will see a sweet rural community of elderly residents spending their time blissfully tending to their gardens and fishing. When they decided to take a closer look, however, and they might be in for a scare. The villagers are actually dolls.

Nagoro is a slowly shrinking village located in the valleys of Shikoku, Japan. Populated by creepy dolls, it might make you question the reality. Its inhabitants left the village in a search of employment or died. More than 200 dolls inhabit the town. They’ve become loved by their human neighbors and are often celebrated by the community for bringing back fruitful memories of the past.

Eleven years ago, Tsukimi Ayano returned home to Nagoro. Faced with loneliness, she has populated the village with dolls, each representing a former resident. The dolls are all created single-handedly by Ayano Tsukimi. The local school is now filled with a few dozen dolls patiently waiting for class to begin. Made of straw, the bizarre dolls are dressed in old clothes.

Once working in the garden, Tsukimi made the first doll in the likeness of her father, and then she came up with the idea to replace the other family members with similar dolls. 10 years later, her work continues. Every doll is located in a place where she would resemble that person. So strolling along with the village you will find quite unique monuments either working in the field, fishing in the river, or simply sitting along the road and staring at you.
