Upon his release from prison, Fish is brought to an abandoned restaurant by his old associate, Duke, to celebrate his newfound freedom. However, there's unfinished business that Duke is determined to solve.
Fish has spent six years in jail. Six years alone. Six years keeping his mouth shut about the robbery, about the other men involved. The night he is released, the four men he protected with silence celebrate his freedom with a congratulatory dinner. The meal is a lavish array of sushi, served off the naked body of a beautiful young woman. The sushi girl seems catatonic, trained to ignore everything in the room, even if things become dangerous. Sure enough, the four unwieldy thieves can't help but open old wounds in an attempt to find their missing loot.Written by
While eating fugu, Duke says "I cannot see her tonight. I have to give her up. So I will eat fugu." This is, in fact a famous senryu from Japanese poet Yosa Buson, written in the 18th century. See more »
Duke says that hundreds die in Japan each year from eating Fugu. Only around 35-40 people are treated each year for Fugu poisoning with an average mortality level of 3-4 deaths each year (statistics from 1996-2015). See more »
Remember you are a tray. You must not move. You must not make eye contact. You must not react. No matter what you see... or hear.

Sushi Girl was a pleasant surprise. I had attended a viewing with the assumption that this would be a movie filled with snuff-film horror violence, but what was presented to the audience was an engaging story that was part detective story, comedy, action,drama, and thriller, with a dab of love story woven into the mix. It was AMAZING!!! In addition, the casting could not have been better. Mark Hamill, Noah Hathaway, Tony Todd, and the rest of the cast gave a chilling and superb performance. Kudos to all who worked hard on this movie. I can't wait till this movie comes out on DVD, and I can't wait to see what these guys do next.
