Watch: First Trailer for Sion Sono’s ‘Anti-Porno’

Sion Sono's Satire

The first trailer for Sion Sono‘s Anti-Porno has just arrived and is a blast of color and style. Starring Ami Tomite and Mariko Tsutsui, this satire of the pink film industry looks utterly batshit.

Living up to the promise of delivering a sex scene every 10 minutes and wild inventiveness, Anti-Porno dazzles and offends in equal measure, offering up a reality-bending journey into the world of softcore pornography, a film in which the main character pukes rather than climaxes.

The first international trailer is here, which means sorry, no subtitles. Anyway, check it out below.

Sion Sono's Satire

With vibrant colors, scathing humor, and brisk, irreverent dialogue, Sion Sono’s Anti-Porno takes place in a young female painter and writer’s studio, where she’s about to give an important interview and bosses her older assistant around, fussing over her impossibly busy agenda. Just as we’re ready to accept this general premise, the roles suddenly reverse, as the studio turns out to be a film set. The two women are really actresses and briskly swap power, with the older submissive secretary becoming the domineering film star in what turns out to be a porn film. Now the older woman orders the young one to lick her legs in a gesture of humiliation and domination. Cruelty, masochism, parental abuse (in the painter’s flashbacks) and schadenfreude of all kinds fuel this feverish op-art dream that turns on us at every corner.
