Product Description:

Japanese filmmaker Ko Nakahira's debut film CRAZED FRUIT (KURUTTA KAJITSU) sparked outrage and controversy when it was first released in 1956. Based on the sensational novel by Shintaro Ishihara (who much later in life was elected governor of Tokyo), CRAZED FRUIT chronicles the changing values and mores of the postwar generation of Japanese youth, dubbed the taiyozoku ("sun tribe"). During one eventful summer vacation, a pair of brothers whittle away their time drinking, gambling, boating, and chasing women. Like many postwar youth movements around the world, the Japanese teens were criticized for having supposedly loose morals and no goals, and CRAZED FRUIT was denounced for portraying and even lionizing this new generation and its values.
