GOODBYE CRUEL WORLD

グッバイ・クルエル・ワールド

The latest from director Tatsushi Omori (EVERY DAY IS A GOOD DAY), GOODBYE CRUEL WORLD is a star-studded gangster thriller with a Tarantino-esque spin.

When a yakuza syndicate’s money laundering operation is robbed in a brazen attack, the Sugiyama Clan leadership are hell bent on making someone pay. How did this seemingly bizarre group of robbers know about the hotel operation in the first place? And who would be dumb enough to steal from the yakuza? The hunt is on.

As it so happens, the ragtag bunch who cased the joint aren’t a gang of robbers at all, but rather a group brought together by chance and circumstance. Seemingly at the helm is Hagiwara (Takumi Saitoh, with an amazing hairdo, also in this year’s SHIN ULTRAMAN), a sadistic loan-shark who feels he’s found a way to make a fool proof buck. Along for the ride are former leftist guerilla Hamada (Tomokazu Miura), former yakuza Anzai (Hidetoshi Nishijima, DRIVE MY CAR), prostitute Miru (Tina Tamashiro) and her boyfriend and getaway driver Mutoh (Daisuke Miyagawa). It seems at first that they may have truly gotten away with it, but when a corrupt detective is brought in on the case, and the team make a fatal mistake, the crew will have to run for their lives (and a poor hotel clerk may become collateral damage).

Featuring a bumping throw-back score and style for days, GOODBYE CRUEL WORLD is a fresh take on the Japanese crime thriller, with some clear American film influence and nostalgia thrown in for good measure. Betrayals, shoot-outs, and explosions included.
