Product Description:

A political satire from Japanese cult director Seijun Suzuki that is as raw and vicious as the outrageous and violent imagery that generally permeates his films. A boarding student falls madly in love with his host family's beautiful daughter. Unable to express his emotions or work out his sexual frustrations, his hormonal energy takes him to the streets where he begins brawling with youth gangs. His adolescent sexual release comes through his fighting and soon the young student gains a reputation for his untamed nature. This leads him to a showdown with a notorious ultra right wing militarist.

Using the adolescent sexual anxiety as a symbol to mock fascist ideology, Suzuki's 1966 film is one of his most perversely humorous, extreme, and socially conscious works.
