Third Window Films are bringing the 2007 Japanese black comedy ‘Funuke Show Some Love, You Losers!’ (腑抜けども、悲しみの愛を見せろ) to UK Blu-ray on August 30, 2021.
Directed by Daihachi Yoshida and based on a novel by Yukiko Motoya, the film revolves around two sisters who reignite their rivalry following the death of their parents. The cast includes Eriko Sato, Aimi Satsukawa, Masatoshi Nagase, Hiromi Nagasaku, and Koichi Ueda.
Synopsis: Aspiring, but cash-strapped, actress Sumika (Eriko Sato) returns home to the village of Ishikawa to attend her parents’ funeral and renews her feud with younger sister Kiyomi (Aimi Satsukawa), who previously damaged Sumika’s reputation by portraying her as an underhand character in her popular manga comic. Hoping to inherit a sizeable sum, Sumika is forced to stick around when brother Shinji (Masatoshi Nagase) tells her of lengthy legal delays. As Sumika settles back into her old room, a series of flashbacks brings to life the family’s previously eccentric life, contrasting it against the calm and peaceful setting of rural Japan.
‘Funuke Show Some Love, You Losers!’ is available to pre-order now from Amazon.co.uk.
