From the book by Ryu Murakami, this odd movie is about a group of middle-aged women and a group of men in their 20′s that are all karaoke enthusiasts. One of the men murders one of the women and it becomes an eye for an eye after that, growing more violent every time.

You might be surprised by that Movie, because you've never seen something like that in your life.

This Movie is adapted from a novel by Ryu Murakami (Audition, 69 sixty nine, Coin Locker Babies), and of course you would expect something intense – that's exactly what you get here.

The story is revolving around two groups. The middle aged “Midoris” and a group of horny young men. All of them have nothing in common, except one thing – Karaoke and Songs from the Showa Era. The big conflict starts, when one of the young men (Masanobu Ando) kills a Midori, because she doesn't want to sleep with him. The Midoris want revenge and so starts a circle of killing in the “funniest” ways. But strangely that is the charm of the Film – the over the top, unrealistic-realistic story development.

They did chose the cast pretty well. Especially Ryuhei Matsuda and Suzuki Sawa did a very good job. All characters seem to be normal in a way, actually... the craziness of them seems to be normal!

This Movie is perfect for you, if you like black humor, Showa songs (they take a real funny part in the Movie) and unexpected story development. This Movie is clearly in my Top 10, not just because of the humor that fits me perfectly, but also because of the music. They did chose pretty good songs from the Showa Era and performed them inimitably.
