Film Information

When four young orphans — Hikari, Ikuko, Ishi, and Takemura—first meet, their parents’ bodies are being turned into dust, like fine Parmesan atop a plate of spaghetti Bolognese, and yet none of them can shed a tear. They are like zombies; devoid of all emotion. With no family, no future, no dreams, and no way to move forward, the young teens decide that the first level of this new existence involves salvaging a gaming console, an old electric bass, and a charred wok from their former homes—just enough to start a band…and then conquer the world. Tragedy, comedy, music, social criticism, and teenage angst are all subsumed in this eccentric cinematic tsunami. — Oscilloscope Labs

In Micro Scope

Makoto Nagahisa's wild trip is a MicroScope pick, a distinction we'd normally give to films showing in the Dundee Theater Linder Microcinema that are . . . out there.
