Having grown in a devout Christian family and desperate to please his sin-obsessed Catholic priest father, young Yu (Takahiro Nishijima) a fairly normal kid who has no legitimate sins to confess decides to take on sinning big time and becomes a master of up-skirt photography while perfecting his ninja moves required to get just the right angle on his subjects. Things become complicated when our drag-clad hero meets the woman of his dreams; the man-hating Yoko (Hikari Mitsushima), who’s involved in all-out street brawl and beating up a gang of men. This four-hour epic was a New York Times Critics’ Pick and winner of the prestigious CALIGARI and FIPRESCI Prize Awards at the 2009 Berlin Film Festival. Directed by the great Sion Sono (Suicide Club).
