Synopsis / Plot
Oshima's provocative film throws up more questions than it could ever hope to answer (about politics, about film-making, about youth), but is nonetheless fascinating. Playing with notions of reality with a perverse logic (as opposed to dream like whimsy), it is the riddle of a Marxist student film-maker who claims to have been abducted and beaten up by police. When his girlfriend tells him she was with him the whole time and this is not possible, he finds film in a camera that he claims was shot during the abduction and that may confirm his version of events.
