YesAsia Editorial Description

Once in a while, a film comes around that simply and brilliantly confounds all reason. (This seems to occur a bit more frequently in Japanese cinema.) It takes a certain finesse to turn nuttiness into mind-boggling art, and the newest addition to that esteemed club is director Tominaga Masanori. Already acclaimed in film circles for his indie DV shorts, Tominaga takes things to the next level with his debut feature Pavilion Sanshouo (a.k.a. Pavilion Salamandre). The film completely defies genre and narrative conventions with a bizarre story about a family's fight over a century-old salamander. Strange plot twists, peculiar characters, and off-the-wall situations keep the story chaotically busy yet amusingly dormant.

Popular actor Odagiri Joe (Yureru) continues to expand his repertoire in a hilariously campy role, alongside Takada Junji as a bumbling patriarch and Mitsuishi Ken (A Cheerful Gang Turns the Earth) as a calculating gangster. A group of up-and-coming young actresses - Kashii Yu (Until the Lights Come Back), Kiki (Starfish Hotel), Asou Yumi (Survive Style 5+), and newcomer Kitaki Mayu - rounds out the cast for the entertainingly surreal Pavilion Sanshouo.

The Ninomiya family has managed the Salamander Kinjiro Foundation for generations. The job mainly consists of tending to giant celebrity salamander Kinjiro, a national treasure that has been alive for a good 140 years. Thanks to generous subsidies from the government, the Ninomiyas live in spoiled luxury - that is except for flighty father Shiro (Takada Junji) who has managed to rack up a bit of debt. Gang leader Kagawa (Mitsuishi Ken) wants to marry Shiro's daughter Akina (Asou Yumi) and buy out the foundation. Shiro and youngest daughter Azuki (Kashii Yu), however, are not about to let the blobby one fall into the wrong hands. But wait, rumor is that Kinjiro is actually a fake. This is when quirky, wandering X-ray technician Tobishima Hoichi (Odagiri Joe) comes into play...

  但是事實上,世人對於二宮家所保存的山椒魚都心存懷疑,因為具說真品曾經在世界博覽會上遭到損傷,所以背部上應該留有傷痕。因此自稱是21世紀天才放射科大師的飛鳥芳一(小田切讓 飾演)接受了名叫香川(光石研 飾演)的委託來調查真假與否。
