VISE Trailer Lets a Mad Beautician on the Loose
Following a world-premiere at the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival last summer, Shimizu Yasuhiko’s Vise is ready for festival expansion in 2020.
Shimizu’s debut feature centers on Manriki (Saitoh Takumi), a beautician with a dubious moral compass who deploys unconventional methods of plastic surgery and facial reconfiguration.
Often stylishly shot, Vise is a madcap black horror-comedy full of surreal flourishes yet not devoid of meaning. Those willing to dip below the surface will find a tongue-in-cheek take on obsession with youth and the folly of trying to adhere to unrealistic beauty standards.
