Personal disputes in a Marxist movement
5 April 2005 | by (Tellus) – See all my reviews

A record of a time in the university-based 'Zengakuren'(?)(thanks meganeguard)this.

Economic and direct, this is almost two hours cut out of a student Marxist movement and its feuds. The setting is a wedding between two members which is happy and well until one comes from a demonstration with low attendance, the protesters were outnumbered by police, and fires out accusations against the bride and groom for falling out of the movement in favour of family idyll. From then on the disputes hail down in machine gun fashion ripping up 10 year old history which in fact doesn't stop, but just gets faded down at the end of the movie! Everyone is dead serious and strong-willed. We watch them with distance, not sympathizing with any. The settings in which this event takes place are as good as invisible. For great dramatic effect they get toned down by turning off the light and spotlighting the central characters (of which there are a few) instead. All is theater-style. Making it a play instead would make little difference.

Specialist tackle, as this is exclusively about this movement and its key characters this is for those interested in leftist movements only!
