Fun in solitary!
20 June 2003 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

What's a guy to do when he loves guns, particularly American ones featured in movies, but he lives in a country where it's illegal to own one. Well, he ends up being sent to an institution that is more like a military academy than US prison. This very funny film studies the everyday obsessions of prisoners who have nothing left to do during their days but wonder about their next meal or contemplate their next soak in the tub. Each short film that comprises this full feature deals with the absurdities of life behind bars in Japan from a fun and humorous perspective. Everything from dropping and eraser to going to the bathroom takes on dramatic tension that it becomes laugh-out-loud funny.

P.S. for US audiences, putting soy sauce on your rice is often considered child-like in Japan.
