Director: Mamoru Oshii
Japan | 2006 | Beta | 104 Min. | OmeU | German Premiere

Then came Cold Badger Masa, whose scandalous death made people aware of the presence of Fast Food Grifters within the society. Later, Beefbowl Ushigoro put an end to a major gyudon (beef and rice bowl) restaurant chain, and Hamburger Tetsu shocked the entire fast food industry.

Fast Food Grifters are the phantoms who rise and fall with the shifting diet-styles, dissenting heroes who carved their names on the dark side of dietary culture with their glare. Now their legend revives, strong as ever...
