Shark Skin Man & Peach Hip Girl

Based on the Japanese comic book by Minetaro Mochizuki this crazed, comic live-action crime flick follows two lovers on the run as they try to avoid a parade of stylish hitmen, gangsters and gun nuts. Toshiko (Sie Kohinata) is trying to escape her perverted uncle. Kuroo (Tadanobu Asano) is trying to avoid some nasty yakuza from whom he's liberated a small fortune. Our two protagonists join forces for a little romance and a lot of bloodshed. Ultra-hip and hyper-stylish, this kinetic pile-up of sex, drugs, guns and car chases has been described as a combination of Quentin Tarantino (True Romance), Guy Ritchie (Snatch) and Luc Besson (The Professional). In Japanese with English subtitles. 108 minutes
