- Synopsis / Plot
- One of Oshima’s two film adaptations set during World War II, The Catch shows how perceived differences between the Japanese and others perpetuated conflict. In this case, an African American pilot who was shot down is kept in the basement of a storehouse by a group of cruel children who found him. His race becomes a major source of interest among villagers who have had little contact with Westerners.
