For the first time EVER on Blu-ray and remastered DVD, we Third Window Shinya Tsukamoto's classic TOKYO FIST out with a brand new restoration from the original negatives done by Tsukamoto himself!
Once again Tsukamoto steps out from behind the camera and stars as Tsuda, an archetypal Japanese salaryman. He’s married to polite and compliant Hizuru (Kaori Fujii), the dictionary definition of an ideal Japanese wife. Their life is happy, at least on the surface, at least until Kojima (played by Tsukamoto’s own real life brother, Kôji), a friend from his past, shows up on the scene. As a pro boxer Kôji’s business is violence and even before the proverbial sand is kicked in Tsuda’s face we can already sense the wonder and jealousy with which he views his brother’s transformed body. Only once Kojima seduces Hizuru, revealing that he just doesn’t excel at physical violence, but mental and emotional brutality as well, does Tsuda get himself to the gym and into training so he can wreak his revenge with his fists.
Out November 25th on BLU-RAY & DVD
