Funeral Parade Of Roses Film Poster


Toshio Matsumoto's controversial debut feature is an unflinching exploration of the underworld of late-1960s Tokyo. Cross-dressing club kid Eddie (played by real-life transvestite entertainer Peter) vies with a rival drag queen (Osamu Ogasawara) for the favours of drug-dealing cabaret manager Gonda (Yoshio Tsuchiya). Passions escalate and blood begins to flow, before all tensions are released in a jolting and scandalous climax. With its mixture of purely narrative sequences and documentary footage, the film typifies an era when cinema set itself to test, and even eradicate, the boundaries between fiction and reality, desire and experience.
