Koichi Imaizumi Japan, 2010

Aaken's rating of the film The Family Complete

A mixture of Japanese theatre, absurd family tragedy and gay porn, this film may indeed not be easy to get for the Western audience - or those none too familiar with the Japanese way of manipulating symbols. The director uses the various genres as codes, thus compelling us to see beyond them. A porn tragedy?
