Killer comedy
26 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

KILLER VIRGIN ROAD was adapted from the black comic manga, and features an aggressively gag-filled plot. Hiroko IJuri Ueno) is due to be married within the day to the current man of her dreams, but he accidentally ends up stabbing a would-be boyfriend in the back. Later, in the forest, she meets a failed suicide (Yoshno Kimura), whose singular talent is that she's death- proof.

The film is sprinkled with comic production numbers, with colorful visuals and wacky editing, giving this the spirit of its manga roots. Ueno made her mark with musically diverse projects like Swing Girls and Nodame Cantabile, but this film's sentiments are appropriately poppy. Perhaps this lacks the directorial finesse as, say, Kamikaze Girls, but there's enough invention and humor to make this a diverting and unpredictable feature.
