Katsuhito ISHII 石井克人

Shark Skin Man And Peach Hip Girl


Nippon Cinema   ª 

Yakuza gangster Samaheda is on the run. Dressed only in his designer underpants, he runs into young Toshiko, who is currently on the run from her sex-obsessed uncle. A rapid chase through Japan's underworld begins. Samaheda is played by the Japanese superstar Tadanobu ASANO, who is no stranger to Europe either. He has appeared in the films MABOROSHI, FOCUS and LABYRINTH OF DREAMS, among others. SHARK SKIN MAN AND PEACH HIP GIRL is a shrill trip through hip Japan. Visual ideas and bright colors mercilessly flood the senses and chase the viewer through a world of sex, drugs and designer clothes.
