The Return of the Killer Koala

That's him Officer!
Now...with love from Japan...in a cinema near you...from Director Kawasaki-san...we bling you Executive Koala "Tamura is an average divorced salaryman in Japan - and also a man-sized, suit-and-tie wearing, upright-walking koala bear. Though not a human being, he's a successful businessman with ventures overseas who refuses to play office politics. He hopes to marry his girlfriend, Yoko, and raise a child. His visions are of an ordinary life with an ordinary company until his ordinary retirement. But when his girlfriend turns up dead one morning, the police finger the Executive Koala as their prime suspect. Temura runs from Detective Ono and fights to prove his innocence. Tamura wants to know why there are gaps in his memory. Is he a murderer? Does he have multiple personalities? And what does his bartender (the frog) and his boss (the rabbit) know about the two-hundred year old terrifying secret behind the EXECUTIVE KOALA?"

"I remember what your ancestors did 100 years ago. They killed millions of koalas in Australia," he said.

"Every innocent and passive koala had to die for human greed!... This time, I will destroy you."

This is typical arthouse/slasher/Japanese anime crazy mixed-up shit. At one stage the movie shows still frames of blond-headed Aussies in Akubras and evil grins shooting koalas.

The koalas are bloodied and wounded. The slaughter ends with a mother koala cuddling her baby with a bullet hole through its heart. Very tastefully rendered, of course.

Kawasaki's previous directing credits include Kabuto-O Beetle (Kabuto-Ô Bîtoru) and The Calamari Wrestler. I bet his next one features gay whales. You can bet the blubber and blood'll fly then.

It's like an overly long Butter Menthol commercial!
