Takashi Miike, the director of 13 ASSASSINS, HARA-KIRI: DEATH OF A SAMURAI and AUDITION brings us FOR LOVE’S SAKE (愛と誠, Ai to Makoto) — a Bollywood-style technicolor musical action/comedy/love story! The movie comes to Blu-ray and DVD in the United Kingdom from distributor Third Window Films on June 10th.
Not exactly a director that plays along with genre rules, the prolific Takashi Miike now takes his talent in genre bending to the pure romance world with FOR LOVE’S SAKE, based on Ikki Kajiwara’s 1973 manga series. An epic story of a rich high school girl who falls in love with a tough young gangster, Miike’s take on the story breaks all the rules with musical numbers (with music by popular music producer Kobayashi Takeshi), tongue-in-cheek humor, and in-your-face violence. Starring Satoshi Tsumabuki (VILLAIN) and Emi Takei (RUROUNI KENSHIN) as the star-crossed lovers, FOR LOVE’S SAKE is a unique and incredibly wild ride that will change your definition of what a pure romance can be.
