Takashi Miike, the director of '13 Assassins', 'Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai' and 'Audition' brings us as Bollywood-style technicolour musical action/comedy/love story!
Not exactly a director that plays along with genre rules, the prolific Miike Takashi now takes his talent in genre bending to the pure romance world with For Love's Sake (AKA 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 humor, and in-your-face violence. Starring Tsumabuki Satoshi (Villain) and Takei Emi (Rurouni Kenshin) as the star-crossed lovers, For Love's Sake is a unique and incredibly wild ride that will change your definition of what a pure romance can be.
1972, Tokyo. Ai (Takei Emi) is a naïve rich girl who meets young street punk Makoto (Tsumabuki Satoshi) in the seedy Kabuki-cho district. Ai immediately remembers Makoto as the boy who saved her 11 years ago and falls head over heels in love with him. Using her parents' connection, Ai manages to get Makoto transferred into her fancy private school. However, Makoto gets into a fight with the school's teachers and gets kicked out of the academy. Completely devoted to the love of her life, Ai gives up her life of privilege and follows Makoto to a high school filled with delinquents, only to be challenged by new rivals for Makoto's affections. Will Ai's beautiful, angelic love save Makoto, or will she be swallowed by his dark world of crime?

I gave this Miike film three stars because of the extra features and care taken by Third Window. Otherwise I would rank it two stars because of the scriptwriting. It is too long as almost all Japanese films are. The first half is quite enjoyable while the second half gets tiresome. Because I do not understand Japanese I watch these films more than once. Sometimes multiple times to get the full effect. I already own a non-subbed version of the film and watched the first half several times. I turn it off when the second half begins. Now I don't have to do this when watching this version because the music, the only enjoyable part of the film, is edited into a music video excising the tiresome and often violent fillers between songs. Yes it is a Miike film, so violence is normal. But i could only sense the merits of this otherwise well-acted and well-choreographed film when viewing the music video separated from the overall film.

The story is similar to Romeo & Juliet about two star crossed lovers. Recommended for all audiences 16+ this Japanese drama has a lot of action, many twists in the story and an open ending where you can sort of make up your own mind does the male lead survive or not. The music is good with a lot of dance numbers in it, they are however completely different than in Bollywood shows.
The disc is a true region code B blu-ray. You MUST have a code free player for playback. It did not play on my second region code A player. There are a couple of extras on the disc, a making off and the musical numbers.
Overall you are in for a treat if you are like me and like to try out something new!
