First of all Godard doesn't have two d's in the middle
Second of all Oshima never worked for him.
Most important of all this film stars the great Japanese pop group The Folk Crusaders. Imagine The Beatles making an experimental film. it would look something like this.
Oshima is concerned here, as he was in "Death By Hanging" made the same year, with Japanese anti-Korean prejudice. Socio-political events too complex and multi-faceted to discuss in a forum of this kind are the basis of this film -- which end with the recreation of the most indelible image of the Vietnam war.
The result is a baroque masterpiece that foreshadows Rivette's "Celine and Julie Go Boating."
