Reality is the mystery.
Suicide Club's maverick cult director Sion Sono returns with a disturbing, visually electrifying shocker about a sexually abused young woman and her hallucinatory reality. This surreal shockfest just gets more disturbing as it progresses... even before the amputations, bondage imprisonment, and secret transsexuality! Teenage Mitsuko is f-rced to watch her parents' lovemaking through the peephole of a cello case. Soon she is involved in her father's wicked sex acts, the death of her mother and suicide attempts... yet all of this is apparently a novel being penned by reclusive, wheelchair-bound author Taeko. Or is it? Strange Circus is an often wicked, always bizarre, cinematic ride for the adventurous!
