Product Details

Takashi Miike spins this black comedy about the most dysfunctional family on the planet. The film opens with a father (Kenichi Endo) a gung-ho TV reporter not only paying to have sex with his estranged prostitute daughter in an anonymous hotel room but also videotaping the act as part of a documentary about "young people today." His son, who is brutalized on a daily basis by schoolyard bullies, beats, whips, and terrorizes his mother (Shungiku Uchida), who is covered with welts and bruises. Mom in turn finds solace in heroin and is not above hooking to pay for the habit. Their lives change for the better when a mysterious stranger (Kazushi Watanabe) cracks the father over the head with a rock and eventually shows them the way to familial happiness. Of course, this way includes multiple murders, necrophilia, and a kitchen full of breast milk.
