This baroque, surrealist comedy adapted from the manga tackles the rivalry between Tokyo and its neighbouring suburbs. A delirious critique of the retreat into restricted ideas of identity.En savoir plus
It’s not easy being born in Saitama, a seamy province of ill repute. In the midst of a gang war that pitches it against glorious Tokyo, the encounter between two students could change everything… Steampunk-inspired sets and baroque costumes are a staple of this insane adaptation of Maya Mineo’s manga by the director of cult movie Thermae Romae. An exuberant story sprinkled with epic battle scenes!
