Gravity's Clown - Junichi Mori (2009)
Haru's life is already complicated. His family has done their best to accept him depsite the fact that he was conceived as the result of his mother being raped, but after he and his brother Izumi become suspects in a serial arson case his life becomes even more complicated. Based on a novel by Kotaro Isaka (Sweet Rain: Acuracy of Death, Fish Story).
Getting Any? - Takeshi Kitano (1994)
In 1995 Takeshi Kitano went from making gritty yakuza films to one of the goofiest comedies to ever hit the big screen. Much closer to his Japanese TV high jinks "Geting Any?" starts off as one man's quest to have "car sex" and ends up lampooning everything from airline travel and the yakuza to such popular films as David Croneberg's "The Fly", "Ivan Reitman's "Ghostbusters" and even "Zatoichi".
