Storyline

The psychopath Arano arrives in Tokyo with a bag full of knives with the intention of killing Yakuza. He gets close to the smalltime gangster Kamijo, who was assigned by the old Yakuza Boss to kill the gangster Matsunaga, but he is not a killer. When Arano kill two American drug dealers, Kamijo steals the boom box with drugs. But the young prostitute Alice convinces Arano to rob the drugs and travel with her to Fiji. When she disappears with the drugs, Arano begins his rampage against Yakuza. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Very slow symbolic film
29 January 2003 | by urabutlnSee all my reviews

This film is very slow, it's about a disillusioned youth that prowls around killing Yakuza. There isn't really a plot, just critisism of the society that Japanese youth grows up in. There is strong symbolism in the film, but I found it quite hard to understand all the time.

I think there are films who deal with this subject better, never the less the film is worth seeing.
