For Love's Sake

Takashi Miike lampoons teen romance movies with this cocktail of musical numbers and gang fights. Adapted from the '70s manga The Legend Of Love And Sincerity, the film, out soon from Third Window, stars Emi Takei as Ai, the smartest, prettiest girl at a posh Tokyo school. In the manner of good girls since time immemorial, she falls for bad boy Makoto (Satoshi Tsumbuki), but when he is expelled, she unwisely follows him to the dirty, dangerous halls of Hanazone High School. There, Makoto attracts the attentions of the lethal girl gang members Yuki (Ito Ono) and Gumko (Sakura Ando). Can Ai's love save Makoto?
