Critic Reviews for Samehada otoko to momojiri onna (Shark Skin Man and Peach Hip Girl )
Comes across like an overextended music video that would leave even Madonna drooling.
The funky title of this Japanese yakuza bloodletting is, alas, better than the film itself.
Makes killing look like high-spirited fun and turns violent death into an occasion for giggles and snickers.
Falls into the clotheshorse cliché: all dressed up and no place to go.
The movie is visually impressive, but Ishii's virtuoso style can't overcome the flatness of the comic-book story he's telling.
Audience Reviews for Samehada otoko to momojiri onna (Shark Skin Man and Peach Hip Girl )
a fun caper flick featuring an odd couple on the run from a host of colorful characters. it's very stylish, with a light tone that becomes much darker, reminiscent of a tarantino film. tadanobu asano is dead cool as ever
A man named Samehada (Ichi The Killer's Tadanobu Asano), on the run from the Yakuza for stealing one hundred million yen joins up with a woman, Toshiko, on the run from her job at her perverted uncle's hotel. The uncle hires an elven hitman with a unibrow, Yamada, to kill Samehada and ensure Toshiko's safe return. Even tho it seems the viewer is thrown into the fast-paced film with so many characters, they're all well developed and the film becomes very easy to follow. Sure, the story of a yakuza being chased for stealing money from the gang isn't anything original, but this film has something others don't. Style. Includes a favorite opening credits sequence.
