Cross-dressing club-kid Eddie (played by real-life transvestite entertainer extraordinaire Peter) vies with a rival drag-queen (Osamu Ogasawara) for the favours of drug-dealing cabaret-manager Gonda (Yoshio Tsuchiya). Passions escalate and blood begins to flow - before all tensions are released in a jolting climax.

With its mixture of purely narrative sequences and documentary footage, Funeral Parade Of Roses comes to us from a moment when cinema set itself to test, and even eradicate, the boundaries between fiction and reality, desire and experience. Consequently the film shares a kinship with such other 1969 works as Masahiro Shinoda's Double Suicide and Ingmar Bergman's A Passion. Yet Matsumoto achieves a zig-zag modulation between pathos and hilarity that makes his picture utterly unique: a filmic howl in the face of social, moral, and artistic convention.
