YesAsia Editorial Description

Best known in Japan as Matchan from owarai duo Downtown, comedian-turned-director Matsumoto Hitoshi landed a critical and commercial hit in 2007 with his directorial debut Dai Nipponjin, an oddball mockumentary about a loser superhero. His 2009 sophomore film Symbol is an even more idiosyncratic and bizarre effort that was again shrouded in secrecy during production. Matsumoto again pulls triple duties as director, writer, and leading man for Symbol, and this time, he is virtually the film's only cast member. Symbol jumps between two threads, one about a Mexican wrestler named Escargot Man and the other about a trapped man trying to escape a white room full of cherubs. The third act ties together the two stories in spectacularly mind-blowing fashion. Reveling in fantasy, absurdity, and physical humor, Symbol has topped critics' lists, while also leaving many scratching their heads.

Product Information

[松本人志監督最新作映画「R100」公開記念!!] 松本人志作品がブルーレイで蘇る!! ――しんぼる想像もつかない“ 何か”が起こる。メキシコのとある町。家族と幸せに暮らすプロレスラー、エスカルゴマンはいつもと変わらぬ朝を迎えていた。しかしその日、妻は夫であるエスカルゴマンがいつもとは少し様子が違うことを感じていた。それは今日の対戦相手が、ひと回りも年が若く、過激で有名なテキーラ・ジョーだということだけではなく、“何かが起こりそう”な妙な胸騒ぎを感じていたからだった。一方、奇妙な水玉のパジャマを着た男は、目を覚ますと四方を白い壁に囲まれた部屋に閉じ込められていた。ここが何処なのか?なぜ男はその部屋に閉じ込められたのか?誰の仕業か?途方に暮れる男は、何とかその部屋から出ようと試みるが、出口が見当たらない。壁に近づいて触れてみると、男の視線の先に“何か”が現れた・・・。
