Movie Info

Yoichi Sai's prison film Doing Time stars Tsutomu Yamazaki as Hanawa, a man serving a sentence in a minimum-security prison. Life in the jail is rigid and organized, eventually leading all of Hanawa's cellmates to abandon their individuality. Hanawa lasts longer than the others, but a stint in solitary confinement leads him to the same emotional and psychological state as the others. Doing Time was screened at the Vancouver Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

I found myself far more bereaved than elated with Doing Time. For a drama, I didn't find it very dramatic. For a character study, the characters are so drilled into conforming that there doesn't seem to be any actual characters ...

Audience Reviews for Doing Time (Keimusho no naka)

A series of small episodes about life in a Japanese prison. No violence or guard brutality, instead super-exacting rules, repetitive tasks and obsession about the food. Subtly funny, and quite unlike any other prison drama I've ever seen.
