A profoundly dystopian documentary that explores the fledgling service industry catering to urban loneliness in Japan. It looks at the subculture of male escorts in Osaka, whose job is to seduce women and empty their wallets. It has a rating of 8.3 on IMDB and is somehow on YouTube – so if you are lonesome tonight, give it a watch.
Welcome to The Great Happiness Space: Rakkyo Café. The club’s owner, Issei (22), has a staff of twenty boys all under his training to become the top escorts of Osaka’s underground love scene. During their training, they learn how to dress, how to talk, how to walk, and most importantly, how to fake relationships with the girls who become their source of income. Join us as Osaka’s number one host boy takes us on a journey through the complex and heartrenching world of love for sale in the Japanese underground
