For Love's Sake
For Love's Sake
  • Description

    Takashi Miike, the director of '13 Assassins', 'Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai' and 'Audition' brings us as Bollywood-style technicolour musical action/comedy/love story!

    Not exactly a director that plays along with genre rules, the prolific Miike Takashi now takes his talent in genre bending to the pure romance world with For Love's Sake (a.k.a. Ai to Makoto), based on Kajiwara Ikki's 1973 manga series. An epic story of a rich high school girl who falls in love with a tough young gangster, Miike's take on the story breaks all the rules with musical numbers (with music by popular music producer Kobayashi Takeshi), tongue-in-cheek humor, and in-your-face violence. Starring Tsumabuki Satoshi (Villain) and Takei Emi (Rurouni Kenshin) as the star-crossed lovers, For Love's Sake is a unique and incredibly wild ride that will change your definition of what a pure romance can be.

    1972, Tokyo. Ai (Takei Emi) is a naïve rich girl who meets young street punk Makoto (Tsumabuki Satoshi) in the seedy Kabuki-cho district. Ai immediately remembers Makoto as the boy who saved her 11 years ago and falls head over heels in love with him. Using her parents' connection, Ai manages to get Makoto transferred into her fancy private school. However, Makoto gets into a fight with the school's teachers and gets kicked out of the academy. Completely devoted to the love of her life, Ai gives up her life of privilege and follows Makoto to a high school filled with delinquents, only to be challenged by new rivals for Makoto's affections. Will Ai's beautiful, angelic love save Makoto, or will she be swallowed by his dark world of crime?
