Synopsis

Pandy and Retro awaken naked on Earth with no recollection of their past. They embark on a devastating crime spree in search of food, clothing and transportation, but are captured by authorities and sent to the infamous lunar penitentiary named Dead Leaves. While incarcerated, they quickly discover that Dead Leaves is also a top-secret cloning facility, occupied by villainous guards and deformed genetic experiments. Ultra-manic chaos and hyper-violent bedlam ensue as they organize a prison break with the aid of their fellow mutant inmates. Manga Entertainment has once again teamed-up with Japan's revered Production I.G (Kill Bill, Ghost in the Shell) to create another unique and original co-production. The iconoclastic Dead Leaves exhibits a continued effort to develop new, cutting-edge anime films, following 2003’s acclaimed ethereal period piece Kai Doh Maru and 2001’s smash vampire action-thriller Blood: The Last Vampire. Boasting an extraordinary cast of characters in a comically abusive and chaotic adventure, Dead Leaves displays a new and uncharted dimension of Japanese animation, presented in an eye-popping, vibrant and frantically-paced action-adventure film. Dead Leaves is an unusually fresh anime feature that intentionally rattles the senses.
