The human cannibalistic desire is explored through the prism of one Japanese man, Issei Sagawa. As a student at the Sorbonne in Paris, Sagawa was arrested on June 13, 1981, for killing his classmate and eating her. Declared legally insane, he returned to Japan. He has been a free man ever since.

MUBI's take

After Leviathan won a slew of awards, its directorial duo stunned audiences with this portrait of an infamous cannibal and his brother. Unflinching? Too feeble a word for this one. As ignoble urges sidle up to fraternal loyalty in extreme close-ups, an air of obsession and moral ambivalence reigns.
