Director: Sion Sono
“Evoking an unhinged Ken Russell on a sushi binge.” - Variety
Clocking in at just under 240 minutes but never skipping a beat, visionary filmmaker Sion Sono (Suicide Club, Noriko's Dinner Table) presents an epic love story peppered with religion, perversion and martial arts.
After being forced to confess his sins by his priest father, high school student Yu embarks on a spree of wrongdoing, becoming a ninja-like master of sneak-photography - taking photos up girls' skirts. Yu's world is knocked even further off-kilter when he meets Yoko - a man-hating riot girl - and gets involved with a mysterious cult.
Sion's masterwork is a one of a kind - an iconoclastic, scattershot action-comedy-romance.
“I'm through with the New Wave. I'm making the kind of films I liked as a kid. I'm enjoying myself."" - filmmaker Sion Sono
