Kanako Oba, a withdrawn young woman, has but one goal in her dreary life : to travel to Mexico. To gather the needed money, she works in a high class restaurant that caters only to professional hitmen.

Already the author of two insane films (Sakuran and Helter Skelter), Mika Ninagawa is back with a new delirious acid bomb, a sort of remake of Greenaway's The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover, with in the lead roles Tatsuya Fujiwara (Battle Royale, Death Note, TV Show) and the very kawaï Tina Tamashiro whom we'll also be seeing in Noboru Igushi's next film. This edition's deliciously demented moment.
