MIFF – Cold Fish

Cult Japanese director Sion Sono (Love Exposure, MIFF 2009; Guilty of Romance, MIFF 2011) brings us a gore-drenched, pitch black comedy about a man drawn into the clutches of a deranged couple.

Coldfish postertThis is an outrageously violent comic book styled movie. The audience certainly laughed at the various parts but is a scene where a husband is raping his wife and then punches his daughter in the face really funny? Given the differences in culture would Japanese audiences laugh at the same parts?

I got the feeling that the plot was put together more as a collection of gross out scenes rather than an effort in coherence.
