Program Note

Timid civil servant, Kenji, takes charge of demolishing a dance hall located in a big shopping mall. No one wants to take the work because the ghost of Mary, a former dancer in the dance hall, interrupts whenever attempts are made to tear the building down. Kenji tries to find an exorcist to lift the curse, and after several attempts, finally meets Yukiko, who can see ghosts. Kenji and Yukiko then embark on a difficult journey to find Mary’s lover, Johnny.

Director Sabu presents a witty, hybrid film mixing diverse genres such as comedy, yakuza, samurai action and horror. Naoto, a member of Exile, cleverly performs the role of Kenji and adds further fun elements to the film. (Ellen Y. D. KIM)




SABU made his directorial debut with Dangan Runner (1996), which screened in the Panorama section at Berlin Film Festival and many other festivals. He is well known for Miss ZOMBIE (2013) and Chasuke’s Journey (2014). Mr. Long (2017) was officially selected by the Tokyo Film Festival.
