Event Description

(1999) dir Takashi Miike w/Ryo Ishibashi, Eihi Shiina, Tetsu Sawaki, Jun Kunimura [115 min; DCP]

Returning to the Brattle in a new digital print for the occasion of its 20th anniversary, we’re thrilled to present Takashi Miike’s masterpiece in all of its transgressive glory. A lonely widower reluctantly agrees to start dating again at the urging of his teenage son and, through a crackpot scheme by a producer friend, meets the beautiful Asami (Shiina). The first half of the film feels like a romantic comedy/drama with Shigeharu falling hardfor the alluring woman but, when Asami believes that she has been wronged, a whole new side of her emerges – a ruthless, needle-wielding, masochistic, nightmare side. Need we say, this film is not for the faint of heart.
