Guilty Of Romance
Sono Sion
Japan 2011
112 min

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 nude 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.
Once again Sono tackles a true crime story with Guilty of Romance – last year’s Cold Fish also had roots in real events – and once again the results are a devastating look into the dark heart of humanity. A twisted fusion of sex and death, Guilty of Romance will surely shock those unfamiliar with Sono’s previous work while challenging his long-time fans with one of his most unsettling works.
