G.I.deserters in Japan
18 March 2007 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

I had seen this movie as one in box set of Teshigahara issued in Japan few years ago.This is his last one and most boring movie in the box set. American G.I.Jim deserts his base in Japan.His Japanese bar hostess girlfriend help hip to avoid military police and he escaped to Tokyo and begins to be a part of anti-war organization. During Vitnam War was many of American and European movies like that. Script was written by Japanese culture researcher John Nathan.Alienating from society in 60-70s was very common theme in books and movies...Relationship with Japanese well-known from Madame Butterfly...That movie is different from beautiful artistic black-and-white movies of Teshigahara. Avoid it.
