This movie plays out as a series of vignettes, each a few minutes long, focusing on various aspects of the (Japanese) writer's time spent in a Japanese prison. There is virtually no violence or brutality as one might expect from prison life, rather incredibly arbitrary and strict rules and incredible boredom. Not fast moving, but not boring either. Vividly, and in a way beautifully, portrayed.
