Cannes 2011: Teaser Premiere For Sion Sono's GUILTY OF ROMANCE

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Sion Sono - the acclaimed director of Suicide Club, Love Exposure and Cold Fish - makes the trip to Cannes this year with the selection of his latest offering, Guilty Of Romance, as part of the Director's Fortnight sidebar.

A gritty and disturbing thriller based on actual events this will, no doubt, shock and provoke audiences at the big festival. Here's how they describe it:

Izumi is married to a famous romantic novelist but their life seems just a simple repetition without romance. One day, she decides to follow her desires and accepts to be a naked model that fakes sex in front of the camera. Soon she meets a mentor and starts selling her body to strangers but at home, she is still the wife she is supposed to be.One day a brutally murdered body is found in the love hotels district. The police tries to understand what happened.

A tale of sex, repression and violence ... sounds right up Sono's alley.

We are proud to premiere the first teaser for the film here on Twitch. Take a look below.
