Program Note

Despite her great credentials, Kanou begins work at a well-paid escort service, but on the first day, she runs from a client and is reassigned to menial work. Crazy Bunny Escort is on the 4th floor of a villa building. Kanou witnesses the various faces of supervisor Yamashita and the kind Hagio, driver Ryota, the women waiting for calls in the space she manages, Chika who quietly writes down things in her notebook, and Mahiru, who hides all her rage and emotional baggage behind her smile. Kanou soon feels a sense of fear and despair.

This bold debut film dealing with the sex industry’s space as the border of self-respect, where each character’s self-preservation or collapse is persistently observed through Kanou’s eyes. The explosive energy on the verge of eruption can be felt as the ruined space is set alight, and a desire for destruction is screamed at Tokyo. (Ellen Y. D. KIM)
