JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable - Chapter 1

Based on the long-running fan favourite manga series by Hirohiko Araki

“Takashi Miike rolls out a visually gorgeous, occasionally grotesque but ultimately fascinating film that could be the best manga-based movie yet”Time Out London

The crazy, multi-generational adventures of the Joestar family (aka Jojo) come to life for the first time via the prolific Takashi Miike, the cult filmmaker renowned for works such as Ichi the Killer, 13 Assassinsand Audition.

The year is 1999. Morioh, a normally quiet and peaceful town, has recently become a hotbed of strange activity. Joutarou, a marine biologist, heads to the mysterious town to meet Jousuke . While the two may seem like strangers at first, Jousuke is actually the illegitimate child of Joutarou's grandfather, Joseph Joestar. When they meet, Joutarou realizes that he may have more in common with Jousuke than just a blood relation.

Along with the mild-mannered Kouichi and the boisterous Okuyasu, the group dedicates themselves to investigating recent disappearances and other suspicious occurrences within Morioh. Aided by the power of Stands, the four men will encounter danger at every street corner.
