Guilty of Romance
Guilty of Romance is a 2011 Japanese film written and directed by the controversial filmmaker Sion Sono, the third part of his “Hate” trilogy (Cold Fish, Love Exposure). This movie premiered at the Cannes Film Festival with mixed reviews. Its Canadian premiere was recently held at the 2012 Toronto Japanese Film Festival held at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre (JCCC) in Toronto.
This erotic crime thriller follows the story of 3 women (a housewife, a professor and a detective) whose lives intersect and ends with a bang. Meant for adults (see the 18 in the movie poster above) due to all the sex and blood, this strange movie will appeal to Sono’s fans.
