Masakiyo Sumida in Late Bloomer

Late Bloomer

2004 NR

When Sumida (Masakiyo Sumida), a motorized wheelchair-bound alcoholic whose hobbies include partying, pornography and punk rock concerts, falls for college student Nobuko (Mari Torii), her rejection drives him into a funk -- leading to murderous consequences. Go Shibata writes and directs this unflinching, horror-filled tale of jealousy that also stars Naozo Hotta, Toshihisa Fukunaga and Sumiko Shirai.
