Audition

Extreme drama from rebel Japanese director Miike Takashi tells of Aoyama, a lonely widower owner of a video production company, who joins forces with his friend to stage a phony film audition in order to find a second wife. Aoyama's choice is Asami, a beautiful ballet dancer, but their relationship turns from blissful to bizarre when Asami unleashes her sado-masochistic side through a series of torturous sessions with the unsuspecting Aoyama. Ryo Ishibashi and Jun Kunimura star in this not-for-the-squeamish tale.
