★★★★

‘Relentlessly violent…The World of Kanako is remarkable.

WE GOT THIS COVERED

 

‘Beautifully and brutally shot and blessed with striking performances’

MARK ADAMS, SCREEN DAILY

‘A visceral dive into hearts of darkness’

ELECTRIC SHEEP

When beautiful straight-A high school student Kanako goes missing, her mother asks ex husband Fujishima – a drifting, irresponsible former cop – to find their daughter. He embarks on a desperate search in the hope of reuniting his ‘perfect family’ – by any means necessary. But as his investigation progresses, Fujishima starts to discover the darkness that lies behind his daughter’s impeccable facade.

Clue by clue, revelation by revelation, he starts his descent into the hellish underworld of Kanako’s secret life… Tetsuya Nakashima follows his internationally-lauded box office hit “Confessions” (multiple Japan Academy Prize winner 2011; Best Asian Film, Hong Kong Film Awards 2011) with an intense, shocking, psychedelic journey into the world of city youngsters
