Director Takashi Miike (Dead or Alive series, Ichi the Killer) doesn’t make nice films. Any movie that bears the mere mention of the director is a clear message to the viewer that graphic violence is going to be found quickly under the surface of even the tamest-looking feature films. Seven years ago, Shigeharu Aoyama (Ryo Ishibashi; Suicide Club, The Grudge) lost his wife and found himself raising his son, Shigehiko (Tetsu Sawaki; Boogiepop and Others), on his own. With his son and a film-producer friend, Yasuhisa Yoshikawa (Jun Kunimura; Tomie: Forbidden Fruit, Kill Bill: Vol. 1), nagging him to find a woman and remarry, Shigeharu gives in to the pair and humors their search. Using a fake movie audition to lure in women to be interviewed, a quiet ballerina named Asami Yamazaki (Eihi Shiina; Sky High, Eureka) catches Shigeharu’s attention. A courtship soon begins, but this delicate flower has thorns hidden beneath the surface.
