Takashi Miike's 'For Love's Sake' out on June 10th!

Prolific Japanese director Takashi Miike (13 Assassins, Audition, Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai) returns to the genre which he so successfully conquered with his 2001 hit 'The Happiness of the Katakuris' with his latest musical masterpiece FOR LOVE'S SAKE!

June 10th sees the DVD & Blu-ray release of his latest film which was Officially Selected to play Out of Competition at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, starring Satoshi Tsumabuki (Villain), Emi Takei (Rurouni Kenshin) and Sakura Ando (Love Exposure).

Not exactly a director that plays along with genre rules, the prolific Takashi Miike now takes his talent in genre bending to the pure romance world with For Love’s Sake (a.k.a. Ai to Makoto), based on Kajiwara Ikki’s 1973 manga series. An epic story of a rich high school girl who falls in love with a tough young gangster, Miike’s take on the story breaks all the rules with musical numbers (with music by popular music producer Kobayashi Takeshi), tongue-in-cheek humour, and in-your-face violence. For Love’s Sake is a unique and incredibly wild ride that will change your definition of what a pure romance can be.

Both the DVD and Blu-ray feature a 35 minute Making Of, Theatrical Trailer plus a 'Music-only version' which allows you to watch just the musical numbers from the film and skip to your favourite song!
