Synopsis

Controversial Japanese militarist Ikki Kita was a right-wing extremist who sought to overthrow the government. He led the notorious February 26, 1936 coup, which was later fetishized by Yukio Mishima.

Our take

Following Eros + Massacre and Heroic Purgatory, Kijū Yoshida closes his provocative, avant-garde political trilogy with this radical take on the life of totalitarian right-wing extremist Ikki Kita. Realized in a modernist mise-en-scène, Coup d’etat offers a remarkable view of 1936 Japan.
