Ten years ago, the Kitagawa yakuza clan attacked the Muto yakuza clan at Muto’s own home, only to have Muto’s wife fight back. This unexpectedly left the Kitagawa clan in shambles, with their top hitman Ikegmai wounded and Muto’s wife in prison. Despite the carnage, the most unfortunate fallout from this attack is when Muto’s beloved daughter, Mitsuko, has her adorable toothpaste commercial taken off the air. Now, Ikegami seeks revenge, while Muto only has one desire: to have his wife return from prison to see Mitsuko star in her first movie. Enter The F@#k Bombers, an eager but untalented group of wannabe filmmakers whose dreams of making movies have come crashing down after ten years. Circumstances have brought them to this fateful moment where they’ll be able to film the climactic battle between yakuzas in an epic, over-the-top ending for the ages.

Selection Committee Comments

“If Quentin Tarantino made a comedy about Japanese gang warfare, this would be it!”

“It’s Kill Bill meets The Seven Samurai, or maybe Django meets the Drifters!”

“This film promises to be an all-time Japanese cinema cult classic. It is so campy! Film students and aficionados around the world will love it.”

“After 5 minutes, I realized the ‘violence” wasn’t serious, and so I laughed all the way through!”

“From now on, when I brush my teeth, it will always feel different! Watch the movie, and you will understand why.”

“Totally silly, totally over the top, and totally entertaining. I loved it!!”
