Autoreiji (Outrage) trailer and plot online
A new trailer for Autoreiji (Outrage), the latest film from Takeshi Kitano has arrived, and along with it a plot and a half.
The trailer looks superb even though I can't understand a word of it, there's lots of slapping, punching and anger. Indeed most of the characters look outraged.
In a ruthless battle for power, several yakuza clans vie for the favor of their head family in the Japanese underworld. The rival bosses seek to rise through the ranks by scheming and making allegiances sworn over saké. Long-time yakuza Otomo has seen his kind go from elaborate body tattoos and severed fingertips to becoming important players on the stock market. Theirs is a never-ending struggle to end up on top, or at least survive, in a corrupt world where there are no heroes but constant betrayal and vengeance.
Sounds superb, although the big draw here is Kitano. I can't wait for an English language version of the trailer.
