Outrage Coda

Outrage Coda

Synopsis

Director

Brutal, bloody and breathtaking – enter the idiosyncratic world of internationally renowned and award-winning Japanese megastar Takeshi Kitano. In the last chapter of his notorious „Outrage“ trilogy, he takes us on yet another rollercoaster ride down the underground Japanese mafia theme park.

Five years since the out for blood war raged between the notorious Sanno and Hanabishi crime families, the dust has finally settled. However, a small stir causes former Yakuza boss Otomo (played by the director himself) to emerge once again, settle the score and seek final retaliation. Drenched in bullets, explicit violence and signature comedic moments, Kitano’s poetic pulp masterfully weaves the threads of art-house and action. As tension rises, the scenes progress in immaculately composed shots, building a nerve wrecking sense of anticipation before bursting into episodes of unmatched violence that leaves none standing.

Takeshi Kitano

(b. 1947, Tokyo) began his distinctive show business career in 1972, working under the name of „Beat“ Takeshi. He has enjoyed enormous success in Japan as both a stand-up comic and weekly television personality; he is also an accomplished actor and painter whose artwork appears in some of his films. In addition, he has written poetry, novels, short stories and essays. His samurai-film „Zatoichi“ won several awards at the 2003 Venice Film Festival and was popular amongst Estonian audience as well. His films „Glory to the Filmmaker!“ (2007) and „Achilles and the Tortoise“ (2008) were presented at the PÖFF programme. „Outrage Coda“ is Kitano’s 18th full-length feature
