A comedy-melodrama based on the bestseller by Hideo Okuda and adapted by Tetsuya Nakashima, the director of Kamikaze Girls and Memories of Matsuko. The multi-stranded narrative weaves together tales of sexual shenanigans in contemporary Tokyo, with no behaviour too bizarre or extreme to find its way onto the screen. A talent scout for the sex industry becomes a nominal leading character and linking device, but otherwise this is a riot of raunchy fun that doesn’t shy away from the more sad and sordid aspects of the stories.
A Third Window release.
