Seijun Suzuki: FIGHTING ELEGY on 35mm
Sun Apr 17 | 3:00 pm

"Suzuki Seijun was forty-three years old when he made Fighting Elegy, his penultimate film for Nikkatsu, but it wasand remainsa wonderfully youthful movie. A subversively funny account of the making of a model fascist, it goes where no film before had gone in search of comic insights into the adolescent male mind. Its set in the mid-1930s, at the precise moment when militarism consolidated its grip on the imagination of young Japanese mena moment, therefore, that fuelled the countrys imperialist ambitions in East Asia and ultimately led to the Pacific War. To look back at that time from 1966 was to raise unresolved issues of nationalism and Japanese identity, issues still as relevant to many young people as to those of Suzukis generation who had been conscripted to fight."  Tony Rayns, The Criterion Collection
