Third Window Films to Publish Funuke: Show Some Love, You Losers! on Blu-Ray in the UK this August

Third WIndow Films have announced that they will publish the Japanese live action film Funuke: Show Some Love, You Losers!, known in Japan as 腑抜けども、悲しみの愛を見せろ, on Blu-Ray in the UK on 30th August 2021.

Funuke: Show Some Love, You Losers is described as a quirky comedy about the rivalry between two sisters, set amidst the backdrop of rural Japan. The film, which was deemed the winner of the Free Spirit Award at the Warsaw Film Festival, was originally released in 2007 in Japan and is based on the novel by Yukiko Motoya.

Aspiring, but cash-strapped, actress Sumika (Eriko Sato) returns home to the village of Ishikawa to attend her parents’ funeral and renews her feud with younger sister Kiyomi (Aimi Satsukawa), who previously damaged Sumika’s reputation by portraying her as an underhand character in her popular manga comic. Hoping to inherit a sizeable sum, Sumika is forced to stick around when brother Shinji (Masatoshi Nagase) tells her of lengthy legal delays. As Sumika settles back into her old room, a series of flashbacks brings to life the family’s previously eccentric life, contrasting it against the calm and peaceful setting of rural Japan.

The exciting aspect of this news is that Third Window Films will be the first publisher/distributor in the world to release the film on Blu-ray with the Blu-ray itself featuring Japanese audio with English subtitles, extended and deleted scenes and Making of Feature. Funuke: Show Some Love, You Losers! will be available in the UK on 30th August 2021 and is currently available to pre-order online from retailers such as Amazon UK.
