Guilty of Romance (Sion Sono) (R18+)

Unread post by HungFist » 31 Jan 2011, 23:48

It was previously reported that Sono had a bit of casting difficulties due to the sex scenes. I don't think the film has even started filming yet, but it's already slapped with an R-18 rating.

Official site (half empty):
http://www.koi-tumi.com/index.html

Here's a bit of twitter info in English:

Sono Shion's next has been announced: GUILTY OF ROMANCE starring Mizuno Miki, Togashi Makoto, & Kagurazaka Megumi.

Another inspired-by-real-crime story. Mizuno plays a police detective, Togashi a university assistant professor, Kagurazaka a housewife.

Unsurprisingly, all three female leads will have nude scenes. Sono joking described it as a Japanese SEX AND THE CITY

Mizuno (from the past decade's best Japanese action movie, Hard Revenge Milly: Bloody Battle) is an interesting selection.

Don't know why, but I found that quite funny...

You can read my review of Guilty of Romance on Diverse Japan

Although it's not as perfect as Cold Fish, Guilty of Romance is still a film that is awash with Sono's style. :thumbs:

Not seen it yet, and thanks for twisting the knife in the wound, as I just kicked it out of my next week's festival schedule (mostly because it's the Int. version). Shall patiently wait for the UK BD...

Thanks for the review, though.

Wish I had the chance to see the longer version - the female investigators storyline is extended somewhat, I believe. Thanks for your appreciation of the review :)

what the fuck? I have that on pre-order, too.

But it doesn't make sense. The full version was even classified by BBFC...
