The world is unknown. The space is undefined. The time is far away in the future. The love is between 2 men.

Highly abstract, it is directed by Takashi Miike known for bizarre pieces such as Izo. Is this a love story between a gentle murderer and a tattooed gangster? (Another stereotypical portrayal) Or a solve-the-crime murder story? Perhaps it is just an expression of art form by the director.

A dance sequence, a butterfly, a faraway rocket, and a group of gay prisoners dressed in yellow stepping over dirty laundry, the movie is full of symbols and psychological questions. At times, it felt like watching a drama in a black box.

The sexual tension between the young men locked in an unknown cell was quickly replaced by another narrative of a murder story. You either love it to bits or hate it for being too self-indulgent. It left me feeling rather frustrated.
