The Mole Song: Final – Takashi Miike – 129’ (Jap) – CF – Comedy/Horror – CENAS EVENTUALMENTE CHOCANTES
With the exaggeration and extreme violence that are characteristic of this cult director, this feature introduces us to a fight for power that includes the Sicilian and the Japanese Mafias. Reiji is a policeman filled with complaints for bad use of force. He is now in charge of an undercover mission to destroy Japan’s biggest drug dealer and his son. Mixing live action and animation, lots of sex references and extreme action, Miike, a prolific director, is always original and inventive but never soft.
