Takashi ISHII

A Night In Nude – Salvation

Nippon Cinema   ª 

Two decades after antihero Jiro’s first adventure, Takashi ISHII sends him out for another trip into the flickering nights of Tokyo and into the abyss of human squalidness. With striking performances, Hiroko SATO and especially Naoto TAKENAKA tell us a simple yet perfectly crafted noir story of sexual abuse, incest and murder.
