Meet Momoko (Kyoko Fukada), a self-absorbed dreamer who fantasizes about fleeing her backcountry home and living life in 18th century Versailles. When she unexpectedly meets the rebellious Ichigo, a rough-and-tumble biker chick, the two misfits form a unique friendship - together, nothing can stop them! Born from the pages of favorite cult author Novala Takemoto, 'Kamikaze Girls' is a frenetic roller-coaster ride brimming with day-glo visuals and wild hilarity that you will never forget!

After experiencing Kamikaze Girls director Tetsuya Nakashima is a talent worth watching out for. He does justice to the source material and delivers a candy infused visual extravaganza, matching the vivid visuals with entertaining characters. This tale of teenage angst and friendship is something that could only be successfully fused in Japan.

Irresistible fun movie!
- Kamikaze Girls review by TE
Highly entertaining slice of pop culture treats! The lurid colours and the slick set piece scenes make this an enjoyable experience for anyone with a sweet tooth for Japanese contemporary stylishness.
The camera just loves the two female protagonists and nearly every frame is a kitschy work of art, all complemented by an excellent J-pop soundtrack.

Candyfloss sprinkled with chilli

This is one well-over-the-top film but you know what? It works. Saved thanks to not taking itself too seriously; if they had deliberately tried to make it a “cult” film or some social comment, it would have been terrible, but is so tongue in cheek that it is good.
