FULL SYNOPSIS

Veteran television director Ben Wada spins this bizarre romance of sorts based on a script written by acclaimed filmmaker Kaneto Shindo. The film opens with lonely recent divorcé, Iwamoto (Naoto Takenaka), drugging and abducting a comely high school student named Kuniko (Hijiri Kojima). After tying her to the bed, he does not violate or brutalize her. Instead, he tells her that he is looking for a perfect union of spirit and body and sets about to make her fall in love with him by catering to her every whim. Several McDonald's meals later, she starts to view her captor with new eyes. Meanwhile, Iwamoto deflects questions from his inquisitive and horny landlady (Eriko Watanabe), who seems just as interested in the strange sounds coming from his room as getting him in her futon. Other wacky characters in the same boarding house include gay mascara enthusiast salesman (played by director Shinya Tsukamoto) and an S & M queen (Asami Sawaki), who has a hard time keeping her job at the work place. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
