Strong Japanese neo-noir
22 February 2002 | by (Astoria, NY) – See all my reviews

This unique film is an archetypal Japanese neo-noir--meaning that it very neatly fuses elements of the neo-noir with intense Japanese surrealism and eroticism. In addition, the main character is also unique--a man who will do anything that needs to be done, for a price. As he explains to a client, this typically means cleaning up a pet and its (droppings), or cleaning up an old person and his/her (droppings), and, as he says, pretty soon You begin to feel like (droppings) yourself.

But in this case, he's hired by a beautiful woman, a female yakuza (gangster), to pick up some luggage. The luggage, as it turns out, is anything but conventional luggage, and embroils Jiro, the "do-it-all" in some bouts of violence and dealings with various yakuza. The mix of some gay Japanese lowlifes, ultra-violent yakuza, and bunk beds named Cynthia and Gloria makes this a film so different from anything else--including almost all other Japanese films--that it's a real find.

I saw this at a recent (early 2002) Japanese film festival in New York City. If you have a chance to see it, don't miss it.
