A major hit in Japan last year, this live-action take on Naoki Urasawa's ace manga series is densely plotted and rich in character. Inspired by the T-Rex song of almost the same name, the film follows a young man as he attempts to unravel the secret of the sinister conspiracy known as 'Friend'. The globe-hopping plot builds up to a spectacular showdown on the eve of the new millennium - man vs machine against the backdrop of bustling Shinjuku!
