Kyoko Fukada (Takeshi Kitano's Dolls) plays Momoko who yearns to be part of the Rococo aristocracy. A shame then, as she was born 200 years too late.
Ardent loner Momoko is born into the Yakuza heartland. She feels, however, more at home in Versaille than her remote hometown of Shimotsuma, Ibaraki. Her appetite for the lavish doll-like fashion known to its disciples as the "Lolita" look is insatiable.
The uber-rebel Ichiko, played by model and cult J-rock icon Anna Tsuchiya, is a Bosozoku motorcycle-gang member. On a 50cc scooter. Laugh at your own risk before she knocks your teeth out. Her Ponytails gang is one of Ibaraki's "wild speed tribes", whose teeth-rattling customized bikes are decked out with their fibreglass shields and bannered backrests. She, too, is decked out in her elaborately decorated Tokkofuku boiler-suits.
In a world is as colourful as Momoko's sweet-filled lunchbox, the path of these 2 incongruous girls cross one languid summer. Asses are kicked (and garments embroidered). KAMIKAZE GIRLS: where Rameau meets the Japanese underbelly on the summery streets of Tokyo. Meet some different Girls on a Motorcycle that would make The Bride blush...
