Cult filmmaker and popular commercial director Katsuhito Ishii (SHARK SKIN MAN AND PEACH-HIP GIRL, THE TASTE OF TEA) brings you seven of the strangest characters you’ll ever meet. Yakuza punk Miki checks into the remote New Mexico hotel to hide out after stealing a case of gang loot. Not long after, Miki’s old flame Kana and her new, geeky boyfriend Todohira show up to collect on a debt, but are soon followed by Miki’s elder gang brother Sonoda, who’s looking for the stolen money.

Meanwhile, shy peeping tom Okita hides out in a secret room built by the mysterious Captain Banana, and both are watching the whole proceedings. Finally, hot on Miki and Sonoda’s trail is oddball mob assassin Wakagashira, who’s also got a strange obsession for plastic model kits! Throw all these personalities together in the same hotel room and it’s a recipe for a party of mistaken identities, sexy comedy and violence. Mixing the spirit of Quentin Tarantino with comic book aesthetics – and an eye-poppingly gorgeous production design – PARTY 7 is an unforgettable portrait of seven weirdos trapped in a cycle of insanity that will have you alternately laughing and gasping with surprise.
