Back in the early 90's a close friend of mine had the misfortune of seeing this movie while under the influence of psychedelics. He never recovered. I think it was the scene where the producers of the film threw a kitten off of a cliff that scarred him for life. How many takes did they do before they got it right? There were numerous allegations of animal cruelty made against the movie makers when the film was released. Including claims from crew members that 20 or so kittens were killed during the filming. Even if these aren't true, anyone watching the movie can see that these animals were mistreated. The scene where the kitten is being attacked by a swarm of seagulls, the kitten in the river, and of course the aforementioned cliff scene all show a heartless mistreatment of animals. I lost a lot of respect for Kon Ichikawa when i found out he was involved in the making of this piece of crap. I in no way endorse the use of illegal psychotropic drugs.
