Director(s): Shinya Tsukamoto

Long synopsis : Two twin brothers. Yukio the good son, the paragon, a gifted doctor, enjoying the privileges of his birth. Shakichi the bad seed, the prodigal. Torn from his brother at birth and left to die in the gutter. A vicious gangster driven by vengeance returning home to reclaim his own forbidden heritage. Two brothers who share only a face, a fate and a woman: the beautiful Rin. A brutal killer's moll. A society doctor's loving wife. Tsukamoto seamlessly welds his trademark hyperkinetic cybervisuals to a more studied, classic style, beautifully reminiscent of Ozu's greatest moments.
