Crazed Fruit

Crazed Fruit

Description:

Two brothers compete for the amorous favors of a young woman during a seaside summer of gambling, boating, and drinking, in this seminal Sun Tribe (taiyozoku) film from director Kô Nakahira. Adapted from the controversial novel by Shintarô Ishihara, and critically savaged for its lurid portrayal of the postwar sexual revolution among Japan's young and privileged, Crazed Fruit is an anarchic outcry against tradition and the older generation. Uploader's Comments: This started the Sun Tribe craze in the Japanese film industry, which later paved the way for new wave directors like Oshima, Masumura and Yoshida. I quite like this one, even if it far from rivals many of the films by the aforementioned. smile1.gif Also includes an English commentary track with Japanese-film scholar Donald Richie. The track is, as usual, very informative and interesting if you're into these kinds of films.
