this black/white movie was 5 years in the making and described by the director Yoshihiko Matsui as " would be a scandal if made into a motion picture." Its focus are the daily lifes of social outcasts in kyoto, misfits and freaks, we have a serial killer, crippled soldiers, an incestuous couple, dwarves and homeless people, all of them struggling to get by.
