The characterization is beautiful and the acting is so breathtaking. It's no surprise that Love Exposure won 14 awards and was nominated for 2 others.
The storyline follows three characters, teenagers who have been abused by their parents. The main male character, Yu, is a devout Catholic whose father entered priesthood after the death of their wife and mother. However, his father becomes involved with a woman who eventually runs off. His father changes and forces Yu to come to confessionals every day and force him to confess sins that he didn't commit. Yu is forced to lie to his father but when he is discovered, he feels he must actually commit sins so he won't lie be lying to his father. These sins become more and more heinous until finally he starts taking sneak pictures up girl's dresses. He doesn't take these pictures to be turned on, but instead to merely have sins he can confess.
One day, his friends dare him to dress as a woman and go kiss a girl he likes. He helps to save a girl, Yoko, from thugs and kisses her before he runs away. His life takes a turn when his father's lover returns with Yoko in two and the two become adopted siblings. However, there is someone on the outside, the third character, who is craftily maneuvering their lives so as to induct them into the cult religion, the Zero Church.Read more ›
Oh, but you wanted to read about the movie right?
Love Exposure, like all Sion movies, is impossible to learn about from reading the back of the box or any review anyone can write about it. The basic description is something like this...
Yu becomes tired of fabricating sins he didn't commit in order to please his father, a crazy priest who reprimands Yu whenever he DOESN'T do things wrong. So Yu starts committing every sin he can, joining a street gang and eventually, to really prove to his dad he's a sinner, becomes a peek-a-panty photographer. Things become complicated when he meets his dream girl, Yoko, in the midst of a street fight and now must win her heart.
Yeah, "things get complicated" alright. That's the understatement of the century. After all of the above happens we still have about three hours left in the film. Let's just say Yu's "I want to sin so I can confess" perspective gets him into a fair bit of trouble, not the least of which is drawing the attention of a cult promoter who takes a special interest in him.Read more ›
