|The World of Kanako – Trailer
An uncompromising revenge thriller of operatic scope, The World of Kanako is a nonstop visual and emotional assault to the senses as it follows troubled ex-detective Akikazu (KÃ´ji Yakusho, 13 Assassins, Babel) on the hunt for his missing teenage daughter, Kanako. What he discovers in his search is an unsettling and harrowing web of depravityâ€“â€“surrounding both Kanako and himself. As Akizaku stumbles along a shocking trail of drugs, sex and violence, he finds himself woefully unprepared for the revelations that affect all he holds dear. A wildly kinetic and startlingly venomous throwback to the best that Asian extreme cinema has to offer, The World of Kanako offers a trip right up to the edge of a man’s private hellâ€“â€“and over it.
