Ariyoshi Jun (Matsuda Ryuhei), who worked at a gay bar, is sexually assulted by a customer, goes into a frenzy and kills the man. While being transported to jail, Jun meets another young male: Katzuki Shiro (Ando Masanobu) an impressive youth with curious tattoos and looks that could kill. Shiro soon displays his brute force from the beginning. The timid Jun is attracted to Shiro's intensity and strength. Jun is the only person that Shiro opens up to as they accept each other for who they are. A guard witnesses an incident. One of the young men strangles another prisoner with all his might in a common area. The corpse has breathed his last breath. It's Shiro. Tears flow down the face of the young man who turns to the guard. It's Jun.

Okay, another far-out movie. Another love it or hate it kind of movie. I loved it! Damn and it has yaoi overtones all over it. This movie, was really hard to keep up with but beautiful as well.

This movie wasn't really all that graphic in nature like most Takashi Miike movies. This was more of a thought provoking, sensually provocative type. The two main characters are total opposites, night and day. One overly masculine while the other one very gentle. Both in prison for murder.

This movie was dark with back and forth, present and past directives. I think there was a moral to this story. To me, it was about rumors and lies and where they can lead. My opinion only.

I know I'm way behind in watching this but I can only watch so movies a day. LOL! But I've saved many Ryu-kun movies...especially Ranai Shashin (a love story...*gasp*). I know it's not his norm type movie. LOL! Can't wait.
