Regular price £17.99
Director: Seijun Suzuki
Cast: Hideki Takahashi, Kotobuki Hananomoto, Masako Izumi
Region: AB

Tetsuo (Hideki Takahashi, FIGHTING ELEGY)), is a low-level yakuza who is double-crossed by his boss and attacked. 

His younger brother Kenji (Kotobuki Hananomoto, THIS TRANSIENT LIFE), is an aspiring artist with no connections to crime, who comes to his aid and kills Tetsuo's assailant. 

Fearing repercussions from the yakuza they flee to Manchuria where they risk coming under suspicion of rival gangs.

Seijun Suzuki (THE TAISHO TRILOGY) remains loyal to the conventions of the yakuza film, but Tattooed Life contains flashes of his later creative genius, including a final act of explosive visual excess that has become one of the director’s all-time classic scenes.
