Synopsis

Rikiya Shoda is an engineer at the Atomic Agency, working on a new project involving the creation of laser beams. One day, his wife Nanako, comes home with a lost teenager called Ayu. With Ayu entering their peaceful life, Rikiya begins to remember his youth, when he was a revolutionary.

Our take

The follow-up to Eros + Massacre turbocharges its modernist style and radical subject matter, and the results are explosive. Shimmeringly opaque, the film explores the political landscape of ’70s Japan through its revolutionary students and vertiginous camera angles: pure, kaleidoscopic Yoshida!
