Synopsis:
For shy and awkward Ryoichi, dreams of musical superstardom have long since faded and he's resigned himself to a lifetime of unrewarding office work for a company that barely acknowledges his existence. But when he randomly buys a pet turtle named Pikadon, a series of events are put into place that not only give Ryoichi the chance to fulfil his rock and roll fantasies, they might just bring about the end of the world. With more imagination in the first ten minutes than most films can boast in their entire running time, Love and Peace is pure Sono: a bonkers and uproarious one-of-a-kind that simply has to be seen to be believed.

Silly and Boring - Love and Peace review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
26/07/2016

Iconoclastic director Sion Sono makes films that are either arresting or complete misfires. This one is deeply disappointing. The typically surreal story concerns a timid office worker who wants to be a rock star. His pet turtle has the magical power to make his wishes come true but becomes increasingly gigantic (in animated form) as it does so. It could be silly enough to be interesting but it isn’t. The music’s dire, the acting hammy, the so-called special effects laughable (deliberately, one can only hope) and the direction throwaway The whole package smacks of a director who needs someone who can tell him some home truths before he loses the plot completely. If you’re new to Sono, watch his wondrous four-hour extravaganza Love Exposure instead.

Well I Loved it, - Love and Peace review by DS

Spoiler Alert
23/08/2016

A Very of the wall film, the plot and story are surreal, but if you run with it, and let your imagination go with the film, you could enjoy it s much as I did, I would have liked the main characters to show a little more character if that makes sense. Overall I really enjoyed the film, at the same time as thinking what just happened when it was finished. But pleasantly surprised.
