Mariko's latest film is a spirited and violent adaptation of Hideki Arai’s legendary 1990s manga chronicle of a frustrated stationery company salesman whose bad temper and sense of absolute justice lead him into an ever-escalating series of dark misadventures. Made first into a popular late-night television series, Arai’s heroic loser is given fiercely cinematic dimensions in Mariko’s long-awaited feature, featuring rising star Sosuke Ikematsu as a young man searching for love and redemption in the least likely places.
