Movie made when Japan still had innocence
14 November 2013 | by ebiros2See all my reviews

Bokura no nanokakan senso is a movie based on the juvenile novel by Osamu Soda. Kadokawa publishing made many movies targeted for teens between '70s, through the '80s. This movie was one of them. The movie when it came out attracted lot of attention as the first movie to star then popular Rie Miyazawa.

Class of junior high school kids barricades themselves in an abandoned building as protest against the draconian dictatorship of their school teachers, and their parents. The story revolves around each of the kids, their take on life, and the panic adults goes through once they found out what happened. The kids shack up at the abandoned building for seven days, making it into sort of a fortress.

The whole premise of the story is kind of a fantasy, and it is not intended to be a serious drama. But in '80s Japan such innocence was "allowed", and nobody thought this movie lacked merit as an entertainment. Plot that today's youth would consider ridiculous, appealed to the more innocent minded youth of the '80s. When compared to the youth of today's Japan, kids were better looking then than now. They seem better dressed as well, reflecting the wealthier social condition of Japan at the time.

Getting to watch the wholesome looking youth that's became extinct in modern Japan is the attraction of this movie. In a way it is somewhat shocking to see what economic downturn will do to the entire culture of the society. Treat yourself to this movie that's a sweet relic from the '80s Japan.
