Some are fascinated by beer coasters or stamps. But Kashiwabara and Oda are completely obsessed with Sunny, the cutest killer ever. When she was 14 years old she murdered her classmate right after taking a selfie with her. And that image has become one of the most famous and notorious images on the internet. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the birth of their muse, our two lads decide to kidnap her and take her to a cabin in the woods. It’s certainly remote, but it has a high speed wi-fi connection to stream everything live for Sunny’s many fans. She will soon realize her power. Far from being a vulgar prisoner, she is a true goddess, and her followers are at her mercy. That is until another woman claims to be the real Sunny. What first starts as a pitched battle on social networks, soon turns to carnage.
You might think that director Kazuya Shiraishi (The Devil’s path) wants to teach us a lesson about our social media obsessed society, but nothing could be further from the truth. What you get is mind-boggling psychedelic satire, which puts him on the same par with Takashi Miike en Sion Sono, who also couldn’t care less about cinematic or social conventions.
