The Greek word "rhapsody" designates "a work composed of several pieces presented one after the other". This project, from three of the most cutting edge and visionary directors working today, is a fantasy in three movements, three directors interpreting a single motif: TOKYO. when they are put together, they form a unique work. A "Tokyo rhapsody", to be precise. INTERIOR DESIGN Directed by Michel Gondry (Be Kind, Rewind, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Dave Chappelle’s Block Party) A young couple tries to set themselves up in Tokyo. The young man’s ambition is clear – to become a film director. His girlfriend, far more indecisive, cannot escape the vague feeling that she’s losing control of her life. Directionless, both are beginning to go under in this vast city until the young woman, utterly alone, becomes the object of a bizarre transformation... Starring Steven Seagal’s daughter Ayako Fujitani (Shikik-Jitsu, Siegfried’s Sansa) in the lead role. MERDE Directed by Leos Carax (Pola X, Les Amants du Pont-Neuf) A mysterious creature spreads panic in the streets of Tokyo by means of his provocative and destructive behaviour. This man, dubbed ‘The Creature of the Sewers’ by the media, arouses both passion and repulsion... until the moment he is captured... Starring Denis Lavant (Mister Lonely, Les Amants du Pont-Neuf) as the Creature. SHAKING TOKYO Directed by Joon-Ho Bong (The Host, Memories of Murder) For more than 10 years, he’s been a hikikomori. He lives shut up in his apartment, strictly limiting all contact with the outside world to an absolute minimum. When a pizza delivery girl faints in his home during an earthquake, the unthinkable happens – he falls in love. Shortly after, he learns that the girl has in her turn become a hikikomori. Will he dare cross the threshold that separates his apartment from the rest of the world?
