Kamikaze Girls is a great story of two girls: One is in a female biker gang, the other loves everything Rococo and lolita fashion. The two have very different personalities and the latter is completely absorbed in her love for Rococo that she rejects any form of friendship. What develops in interesting, and very funny.

Her appetite for the lavish doll-like fashion known to its disciples as the "Lolita" look is insatiable. The uber-rebel Ichiko, played by model and cult J-rock icon Anna Tsuchiya, is a Bosozoku motorcycle-gang member. On a 50cc scooter. Laugh at your own risk before she knocks your teeth out. Her Ponytails gang is one of ... (more)
