LIVERLEAF

30 September, 2018 @ 21:00 - 23:00

- kr90

Swedish premiere/Siren competition

When Haruka Nozaki transfers to a school in a rural town she quickly falls victim to remorseless bullying and abuse at the hands of her new classmates. Befriending Mitsuru, a kindred spirit, makes her ordeals slightly more bearable, much to the chagrin of her tormentors who decide to take things even further. As a tragic fate befalls Haruka’s family something inside the young girl snaps, fueling an all-consuming desire for vengeance. Anyone who ever crossed Haruka will soon learn that hell has no fury like a high school girl scorned – especially if you messed with her loved ones!

Having previously directed the controversial Let’s Make the Teacher Have a Miscarriage Club (2012), director Naitô Eisuke is no stranger to portrayals of adolescents behaving badly. Liverleaf, a live-action adaptation of the Misumisô manga, is no exception. Presenting violence born from the frustration of feeling stuck and as retaliation for being pushed too far, Liverleaf boasts a bold tonal palette that mixes dark drama and blood-soaked splatter. An interesting thematic companion piece to Giddens Ko’s Mon Mon Mon Monsters, Eisuke’s film is a wildly unpredictable ride that gets crazier by the minute.
