Sion Sono - the acclaimed director of Suicide Club, Love Exposure and Cold Fish - makes the trip to Cannes this year with the selection of his latest offering, Guilty Of Romance, as part of the Director's Fortnight sidebar.
A gritty and disturbing thriller based on actual events this will, no doubt, shock and provoke audiences at the big festival. Here's how they describe it:
Izumi is married to a famous romantic novelist but their life seems just
a simple repetition without romance. One day, she decides to follow her
desires and accepts to be a naked model that fakes sex in front of the
camera. Soon she meets a mentor and starts selling her body to strangers
but at home, she is still the wife she is supposed to be.One day a
brutally murdered body is found in the love hotels district. The police
tries to understand what happened.
A tale of sex, repression and violence ... sounds right up Sono's alley.
We are proud to premiere the first teaser for the film here on ScreenAnarchy. Take a look below.
