(aka 'Crazed Fruit' or 'Juvenile Jungle')

directed by Kô Nakahira
Japan 1956

 

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 Ko Nakahira. Adapted from the controversial novel by Shintaro 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.

Theatrical Release: January 1956

Comments:

The print has some damage marks and is very dirty in spots, especially in the beginning, but Criterion have maintained the contrast and shadow detail. There is film grain showing in some of the scenes. It is, of course, progressively transferred and the subtitles are excellent. It looks more like a much older film, probably due to the manner in which it was stored. Original Japanese mono audio is offered. Donald Richie talks of the sexuality of the era among a number of other topics in the commentary and I found his dissertations less-dry than usual. The film reminded me of a kind of James-Dean-ish youth perspective film and I enjoyed it very much.   out of
