A romantic film based on the true story of activist Kumashino Yoshihiko, who raises awareness of the sexuality of disabled people through lecturing and event activities. Perfect Revolution is written and directed by Junpei Matsumoto (Embers).

Kuma (Lily Franky) has been afflicted with cerebral palsy since childhood. His resulting inability to fully use both hands and feet confines him to a wheelchair, but he is an active advocate for engaging public discourse about the sexual lives of disabled people. During this advocacy work he meets Mitsu (Seino Nana), a sex worker with an emotional condition, and falls in love. Together they attempt to break down obstructive social barriers around them.


「身体障害者だって恋をするし、セックスもしたい!」。重度の身体障害があり、車椅子生活を送りながら、障害者への誤解を解くために活動するクマ。彼と恋に落ちたピンクの髪の美少女ミツは、精神的な障害を抱えた風俗嬢だった―。主人公のクマに扮して渾身の名演を見せるのは、『そして父になる』『凶悪』『野火』『SCOOP!』などの話題作に出演し、数々の映画賞に輝いてきたリリー・フランキー。ミツをどこまでも魅力的に演じるのは、『TOKYO TRIBE』のヒロイン役で脚光を浴び、映画やテレビで鮮烈な演技を披露する清野菜名。ふたりの恋をそばで見守る仲間たちを小池栄子、岡山天音、余 貴美子ら、演技派のキャストたちが演じている。

企画・原案は、講演やイベントなどさまざまな活動を通じて、障害者の性を訴えつづける活動家・熊篠慶彦。彼の実話にもとづく物語を、『最後の命』の松本准平監督がポップに力強く映画化。熊篠の長年の友人であるリリーは、彼の活動と生きざまが映画になると聞き、役柄を問わず協力したいといって本作への参加を決断している。さらに、劇中に流れる銀杏BOYZの名曲「BABY BABY」は、リリー自ら銀杏BOYZ峯田和伸氏に「あの曲を使わせてくれないか」とオファー。楽曲の世界観がクマとミツの関係性を見事に表現している。
