Nippon Cinema   ª 

Eikichi is the singer of a death metal band and lives in Tokyo with his girlfriend Yuka. They decide to pay a visit to his family on the island of Tobi, where his rock­music- obsessed father presides over a dysfunctional, but loving, clan. The latest movie by Shuichi OKITA is an uproariously funny take on the Japanese family drama, containing one of the best wedding scenes ever captured on film.
