Caught “Love and Peace” at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival as a double bill with his new “Tag”, and what really clobbered everyone over the head was how versatile Sion Sono is. From surreal guts and gore in “Tag” to “Love and Peace”, a heartwarming fantasy flick that really is fit for the entire family.
The entire film feels like a labour of love, as if Sono is – working within a constrained budget – using everything he’s got, every trick of the trade, to maximize what he’s working with. I looked over a few times and the entire audience had big bubbly smiles from the first frame to the credits. And that’s no small feat in a theatre full of jaded horror fanatics. Highly recommended for, well, everyone, old and young!
