WE ARE LITTLE ZOMBIES

When four young orphans—Hikari, Ikuko, Ishi, and Takemura—first meet, their parents’ bodies are being turned into dust, like fine Parmesan atop a plate of spaghetti Bolognese, and yet none of them can shed a tear. They are like zombies; devoid of all emotion. With no family, no future, no dreams, and no way to move forward, the young teens decide that the first level of this new existence involves salvaging a gaming console, an old electric bass, and a charred wok from their former homes—just enough to start a band…and then conquer the world. Tragedy, comedy, music, social criticism, and teenage angst are all subsumed in this eccentric cinematic tsunami.

 

 

CRITICS SAY

“A hyperstylized, hyperactive and hyper-fun movie spectacular. No pulsating, psychedelic, pop-punk phantasmagoria ought to be as moving and smart.”

 

– Jessica Kiang, VARIETY

“A rainbow-colored, RPG-inspired scream into the abyss. A riotous debut feature.”

— Emily Yoshida, VULTURE

“A stylized 8-bit ode to isolation. A candy colored pop explosion of ennui.”

 

— J Hurtado, SCREEN ANARCHY

“Sometimes, a movie comes along that’s so jarring, so visually explosive, and so utterly madcap that you can’t help but fall in love with it.”

— Chris Evangelista, SLASH FILM

“Blissful, whacked-out, inspired, juvenile, dementedly inventive, hyper-energized.”

—Todd McCarthy, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
