Movie Info

This Japanese melodrama warns of the dangers of the jazz age as it tells the story of a pickpocket and a streetwalker with a taste for tourist who live in an ultra cool jazz bar. The two do all right until another couple finks upon them and gets them sent to jail. While there, the two plot their weird revenge. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Kyonetsu no kisetsu (The Warped Ones)(The Weird Love Makers)(Wild Love-Makers)

This ranks amongst one of the most nihilistic films and characterizations ever committed to celluoid. What saves this amoral depiction from meaninglessness is its frenetic presentation - style abounds, with its jazzy score, volatile camerawork, and Americanisms. Japan's WWII surrender extirpated cultural identity, leaving an entire generation rootless - this montage is a damning commentary of man in the modern era.

one of the craziest of the japanese new wave films, it's full of jazz and madness, freeze frames and anarchy. the main character's facial expressions alone are worth the trip

Koreyoshi Kurahara captures what the film title implies about it's characters, they are psychotic and unsympathetic creatures that are somehow still alive and wreaking havoc on society. The film is controversial as the film involves a rape and also thievery and abortion issues. Kurahara captures the crazy and frantic mood of the film with a series of angled images, long panning shots and loads of fast cuts as well as freeze frames. This is obviously a strange and obscure work but one that is a fascinating watch that flies by with it's short and to the point 75 minute length. The actors all do a stellar job in their roles and portray the warped characters and their acts of mayhem wonderfully! This is a Director with loads of technical genius creating a work of art that is a great watch for anyone into Japanese films or art house productions.
