Bizarre comedy film yet splashes of violence! I think this is what makes films of Takashi Miike a stand-out, they're rough, violent yet you can't stop watching them because there's a queer sense of fascination that's irresistible. I relish the musical numbers and what sticks to my memory was the one where Ai's parents dance and sing. These actors not only act well but are also professional dancers. A story of love and how one's unrelenting faith in someone can bring positive change.
