Bondage in the Bond Age! With his wife in a coma and his department store assistant job boring in the extreme, Takafumi Katayama (ICHI THE KILLER’s Nao Ômori) joins a mysterious gentleman’s club. Membership lasts for one year only and cannot be cancelled under any circumstance. Soon Takafumi has entered a whole new world of kinkiness and dumbfounded ecstasy he’s never before experienced. Are the Queens of Saliva, Gobbling and Impersonation illusions or is everything he’s subjugated to real? Welcome to the hit of Toronto’s Midnight Madness strand, the wildest, wackiest and weirdest ‘meta’ film noir from cult director Hitoshi Matsumoto. Shifting from piano sonata to jazzy pop and old school disco, the score by Shuichi Sakamoto and Shuichiro Toki mirrors the gamut-running romp itself, a uniquely outrageous and sublimely inventive trip down the rabbit holes of passion, love and devotion bound to become a FrightFest highlight and talking point.
Director: Hitoshi Matsumoto. Cast: Nao Ômori, Lindsay Hayward, Mao Daichi, Hairi Katagiri, Gin Maeda. Japan 2013. 100 mins
