58th BFI London Film Festival – Tokyo Tribe (2014)

Tokyo Tribe, 2014

Co-written and directed by Shion Sono

Starring Ryôhei Suzuki, Hitomi Katayama, Shôta Sometani, Akihiro Kitamura, Tomoko Karina, Akihiro Kitamura, Riki Takeuchi, Shunsuke Daitô, Yôsuke Kubozuka, Shôko Nakagawa, Mika Kanô, Ryûta Satô


Five years after the Shibuya riots, the Tribes of Tokyo have been enjoying a period of relative peace, until Kim and two other members of the Musashino Saru intrude on the territory of the Wu-Ronz in Bukuro. Mera, the leader of Wu-Ronz kills the three Saru, under the assumption that they were members of the Shibuya Saru.

Like his fellow countryman Ryûhei Kitamura, there is a certain expectation one has when going into a movie directed by Japanese madman Shion Sono, and Tokyo Tribe is no exception. From its bizarre set-up to its incredibly insane execution, there is nothing subtle in this hip-hop opera (hip-hopera?), but it sadly doesn’t quite live up to its own potential. »
