Director: Takashi Miike

Language: Japanese (subtitled in English)

On June 10, Britain’s Third Window will release a double-disc DVD and Blu-ray of “Ai to Makoto (For Love’s Sake),” Takashi Miike’s one-of-a-strange-kind action musical about a goody-two-shoes girl (Emi Takei) who falls for a delinquent guy (Satoshi Tsumabuki), to the accompaniment of hit songs from Japan’s golden Showa Era (1926-89). A little overlong, perhaps, but rife with clever and cheeky humor. Extras include a making-of video and theatrical trailer.
