TWO COOL JAPANESE FILM EVENTS AT NEW PEOPLE NEXT WEEK
FUNUKE: Show Some Love, You Losers!
( 2007, 113min., With English Subtitles, Directed by Daihachi Yoshida)
Reviewed as “amusing Japanese dramedy” by Variety, FUNUKE was in Cannes Film Festival 2008 Official Selection. This dark comedy centers around a dysfunctional family with a history of dark secrets. When both parents die in a car accident, actress-wannabe Sumika returns home from Tokyo and takes the opportunity to harass her aspiring manga artist sister Kiyomi, whom she still blames for her own failures in life for strange some reason.
