地下幻燈劇画 少女椿 | Shôjo tsubaki: Chika gentô gekiga

Hiroshi Harada Japan, 1992

Spurcatu's rating of the film Midori

A surrealist trip into the all so real existence of the twisted, tormented, deformed, depraved and exiled. The freak show, the worst places to end up in while believing that the world is all kind and helpful. The bare and helpless youth gradually wrecked by the most despicable and grotesque characters, even though hope still lingers. The scenario is kind of bland, but the gorish, gruesome violent imagery compensates.
