  • Nordisk Premiär

Som buddhistmunk ska Ninko vara dygden själv. Men vad ska han ta sig till när han hela tiden blir överfallen av kvinnor som vill att han ska belägra dem?
Vi befinner oss mer än 200 år tillbaka i tiden, under Edo-perioden i Japan. I en fantastisk blandning av animation och agerande skådespelare har debuterande Norihiro Niwatsukino skapat en traditionell japansk spökhistoria. Ninko tvingas ge sig iväg för att finna ensamhet och han möter en samuraj. Denne berättar historien om bergsgudinnan som dödar män för att vinna deras energi. Ninko har äntligen hittat ett sätt att utnyttja sin förföriska kraft. Niwatsukino har gått "all in" – ni har aldrig sett något som liknar detta inom japansk kostymfilm.

Norihiro Niwatsukino

Regissör: Norihiro Niwatsukino

Born on April 6, 1981, Norihiro Niwatsunkino started filming while attending the Kyushu Institute of Design in Fukuoka. After graduating from the Graduate School of Design at Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Niwatsunkino moved to Tokyo and started working as a freelance director and also a screen writer. He has directed various video works includes live-action, music video, animation... His short film [Strawberry Jam] (2010) was invited to various film festivals in Japan. Niwatsukino followed with his first animation series [Onizushi]. [Suffering of Ninko] (2016) is his first feature film.

New and unexpected film experience is what I always want to offer to my audience. I want to show them what they have never seen before. I want to lure them into an unknown world. In order to achieve this, I played with the genre and features of SUFFERING OF NINKO. The film can be seen as a Kaidan story: a Japanese ghost, specter or monster story. But I made sure that it didn’t turn into a horror film. Let’s say, this is the kind of story you may find in one of the Japanese traditional 'Hyakumonogatari', the series of 100 ghost stories: a fateful story confined in a specter painting, scary at time but with a comical expression sometimes too. It’s neither terror nor mystery, but amusement and wondering, that’s why the Kaidan telling are so entertaining. I also wanted to add a layer to the experience of the main character, Ninko, by bringing his inner world as a live-action, a Ukiyo-e (a Japanese traditional woodblock print) animation and a mandala animation.
