This mix of animation and live action is strictly for adults. After the sudden death of his porn-star sister, a missionary abandons his calling to take charge of her five-year-old daughter. The niece is understandably traumatized, but when her uncle discovers she's also been abused he goes on a violent rampage against the industry honchos who exploited mother and child. Like many Japanese anime features, the movie embraces a dark worldview, though here the emphasis is more on psychology than on action or social criticism. Following the tenets of Western tragedy, the flaws and actions of the would-be righteous hero determine the story's bleak outcome. Anders Morgenthaler directs. In Danish with subtitles.
