“A taught and forgiving drama that makes loving an armless, headless, legless torso make sense.” - Nicolas Vroman, Hot Splice

The latest pump-up of the blow-up doll subgenre (Lars and the Real Girl, Air Doll) comes as a bit of a discreet boom. The directing debut of Hirokazu Kore-eda's D.P., Yutaka Yamazaki, Torso, as the title helpfully suggests, features… a torso: a headless plastic trunk - complete with male member - that provides a measure of comfort and pleasure, soothing the urban solitude of an otherwise normal-looking (if a little easy on the eyes) woman in Tokyo.
