Synopsis

2004 Japanese comedy directed by Tetsuya Nakashima. Momoko Ryugasaki (Kyoko Fukada) is a bit of an oddball 17-year-old, who is fascinated by life in 18th century Versailles. She wears her version of what she thinks people wore there at that time and dreams of being able to get away from her boring life. Momoko's father (Hiroyuki Miyasako) makes his living selling counterfeit brand-name clothes, but when he gets on the wrong side of some bad people, he has to flee to the countryside. Momoko decides to escape from her boredom and to make some money by selling the last of her father's dodgy stock. In doing this, she meets up with biker chick, Ichigo (Anna Tsuchiya). So begins a strange friendship and a colourful series of adventures as the odd couple lurch into situations both comic and dangerous.
