Kanako thinks her life can’t get any worse until she applies for a dubious part-time job and ends up being sold to a restaurant with fortress-like walls and an intensely colourful interior. Trapped within, she has no choice but to work as a waitress for a genius chef who caters only to killers. Kanako soon realizes she has been hurled into a world of insanity, without an apparent way to escape. Third feature by Mika Ninagawa, who also directs commercials and works as a photographer, “Diner” is a visual treat with a succession of delicious-looking dishes in a set of overly saturated colours, were the protagonist will fight for her life on a daily basis, as a gallery of weird, extravagant and lethal characters ask to be served.
