Rou wanders through the story, encountering violence, distorted sex, and holiness, leaving the audience shocked and thought-provoked.

Blow2 "'The Whispering of the Gods' I believe, is the most powerful Japanese film I have seen during 2005. Certainly, in it, director Omori Tatsushi makes the memorable debut."

"Tatsushi Omori's 'The Whispering of the Gods,'a feature film debut, is destined to make the rounds of international festivals on thematic material alone."

----------Ronald Halloway/film critic
