Possessions is a sometimes somber, sometimes frantic but ultimately rewarding story about a weary traveler seeking shelter from a storm, who happens upon an old shrine filled with a host of broken tools in various states of disrepair. He shows tremendous skill as he sets about repairing all manner of items, whose spirits harbor old grudges that are not easily appeased. The film's visually stunning fantasy sequences and clever ending are both poignant and well designed.
