Director: Sion Sono
Japan's prince of transgressive cinema, Sion Sono brings us an erotic, psychosexual tale of sex, money and murder.
With this risque, noir-esque film, director Sion Sono (Love Exposure, MIFF 2009; Cold Fish, MIFF 2011) presents a story based on a true-life crime, offering his trademark view on the darker side of society.
Unsatisfied housewife Izumi, professor of literature Mitsuko and police detective Kazuko offset the banality of their everyday lives with secret and not-so-secret sexual misadventures.
Empowerment and misanthropy go hand-in-hand as the explicit details of their affairs are brought to the surface, and a gruesome murder will link their fates.
