Winner of the Entertainment Award at the PIA Film Festival, Ryohei Watanabe's acclaimed debut film tells the tale of a dark relationship between two very different girls. Misa Kumada, known as ‘Pooh, ’ is lonely and unpopular at school, and from time to time is bullied, until one day she is approached by pretty Izumi who seems intent on making friends with Misa. Although somewhat puzzled by Izumi's interest in her, Misa is excited about having a friend for the first time ever. But Izumi's initial angelic demeanor gradually transforms into a demonic one. "“Shady” really is an amazing debut for Ryohei Watanabe, and a gripping psychological drama that comes with a vicious emotional punch. Succeeding both as a dark depiction of teen loneliness and infatuation and as a portrayal of homicidal lunacy, it’s a taut, involving and disturbing film which will doubtless continue to find admirers."-
