Q&A with director Sion Sono!
Sensational indie filmmaker Sion Sono returns to JAPAN CUTS with this much anticipated, gripping four-hour hentai (pervert) epic brimming with absurd gore, cross-dressers, sin and love triangles while exposing the contradictions within human nature. Yu feels compelled to commit sins for his father, who has become a catholic priest and demands daily confessions from him. As a result, Yu joins a local gang and becomes a master of hentai photography. Amidst the chaos that ensues, he falls in love at first sight with Yoko, whom he later discovers will become his new step sister. With an evil religious cult leader determined to convert his family and steal his precious Yoko away, Yu must go to extreme lengths to save the love of his life.
2008, 237 min., 35mm. Directed by Sion Sono. With Takahiro Nishijima, Hikari Mitsushima and Sakura Ando.
