rated for 0 + years A film as a time capsule: the story of a modern class struggle as a humorous homage to the cinema of the late 1960s
Day labourers and sex workers make up the majority of inhabitants in Kamagasaki, a slum quarter of Osaka that has existed in the shadow of the city since the Second World War. Now the authorities and the yakuzas have come together to gentrify the area. When one gang loses the symbol of its power, the further development of the zone becomes a battle of encirclement. Slap in the middle lives a slum patchwork family, consisting of a street urchin, a prostitute and a pickpocket. The film plays with an aesthetic foundation rich in tradition, be it via 16mm film stock or references to classical Noh theatre.
