Recent Japanese films like Drop and Takashi Miike’s Crows: Episode Zero have carved out their own little niche of bone-crushing movies about Japanese high school delinquents who like to drink, cuss, and get into brawls. A new film headed for Japnaese theaters this fall is attempting to put a fresh spin on this now well-worn subgenre.
Blazing Famiglia is all about what happens when those same delinquents grow up, get old, find working class jobs, and have snot-nosed teens of their own. The trailer for the film promises plenty of action and heavy dramatic content. The cast includes Yoshimi Tokui, Kento Hayashi, and Sadao Abe. Blazing Famiglia opens in Japan on September 8th, 2012.
