The World of Kanako Trailer

Shock Therapy Entertainment. Drafthouse Films has debuted a very amusing new teaser trailer for the wacky Japanese film The World of Kanako, starring Nana Komatsu as Kanako Fujishima. This electric, high-energy mystery thriller is actually about her father, an ex-detective named Akikazu, played by Kôji Yakusho, who goes looking for Kanako when she goes missing and discovers her "mysterious secret life". Kanako is described as "a non-stop visual and emotional assault to the senses," and you oh boy can you get a taste of that in this trailer. This is like Crank x100. Not everyone is going to be down for this, but a few of you may be. Warning - there's lots of crazy, crazy violence, so grab a poncho and dive right in. "I'll find her!"

Here's the teaser trailer for Tetsuya Nakashima's The World of Kanako, via Drafthouse's YouTube:

The World of Kanako

An uncompromising revenge thriller of operatic scope, The World of Kanako is a non-stop visual and emotional assault to the senses as it follows troubled ex-detective Akikazu (Kôji Yakusho from 13 Assassins, Babel) on the hunt for his missing teenage daughter, Kanako (Nana Komatsu). What he discovers in his search is an unsettling and harrowing web of depravity––surrounding both Kanako and himself. As Akizaku stumbles along a shocking trail of drugs, sex and violence, he finds himself woefully unprepared for the revelations that affect all he holds dear. The World of Kanako is directed by Japanese filmmaker Tetsuya Nakashima (of Kamikaze Girls, Memories of Matsuko, Paco and the Magical Book, Confessions previously). It premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and at Busan, Sitges & London. Drafthouse Films will release The World of Kanako in select theaters December 4th, as well as on VOD.

    I saw this at a film festival earlier this year, and it was Spectacular. The tempo, the absurdity and the surrealism is just breathtaking. Its shot like a music video, but you never lose overview. I recommend it ! Some bloody provoking scenes in there as well! 😀
