YURUI -Special edition-



2016/Japanese (English subtitle)/91 min

Everyone has unpalatable desires such as envy, greed and vanity. We each strive to keep our desires in check and not be driven by them. However, sometimes these desires take over and we lose control and make mistakes. Be careful! This is when the Mame-charas, sinister fluffy characters, turn up to punish those who lose control.

Who are these Mame-charas?

What do they want? Are they heroes or villains?


The director’s special selection chosen from 12 episodes for this film festival, containing those controversial brutal scenes which almost put the series banned on TV, and have been deleted.
