Strange Circus (Kimyô na Sâkasu)

Fri, Oct 21, 2011

Dir. Sion Sono
With Masumi Miyazaki, Issei Ishida and Rie Kuwana
Digital Projection, 108 min

The film is Sono's exploration of the constraints of reality—through the eyes of a disabled erotic novelist. Novelist Taeko writes stories of incest, murder, and abuse. As her own life and relationships are revealed, Taeko leads her assistant Yuji and the audience through an exploration of the confines of both her fictional stories and her own understanding of what is real. Thought-provoking and visually stunning, “Strange Circus” won the Berlin International Film Festival’s Reader Jury of the “Berliner Zeitung” in 2006.
