Based on the true story of the murder of Junko Furuta, this horrific movie gives a fairly factual account of the incidents surrounding the 41-day kidnapping, repeated rape, torture, and ultimate murder of a 16-year old high school student at the hands of several young boys of roughly the same age.

The film focuses on the leader of the gang of juvenile delinquent boys, as he progress from dropping out of high school, to becoming a budding yakuza, to petty crime, and to serial rape, before finally setting his sights on victimizing a single young girl.

The girl was victimized in the house of one of the boy's parents, and that they turned a blind eye to the atrocity going on under their own roof adds to the outrage of the crime. The movie takes pains to show how the incident was facilitated by the boy's broken home and the parasitic structure of the Japanese mafia that lent the young punks its name to be used to terrorize people. At the same time, it makes no excuses for their actions. Overall, the movie has a very stark and real quality to it.

I felt that this film did an excellent job of explaining how such a heinous crime could happen in Japan--a relatively crime-free country--and in this way, I felt it was more thought provoking than A Clockwork Orange or (certainly) Last House on the Left.

One interesting side note: the main hooligan's long-suffering girlfriend is played by Mika Mifune, daughter of Toshiro.

Another interesting note: the murderer that was the subject of this film was released from prison in the late 1990s. He is still at large.
