Movie Info

A Japanese science teacher (Kenji Sawada) creates a homemade atomic bomb, and threatens to use it unless his strange demands -- which include a Rolling Stones concert -- are met. This dark comedy centers on the teacher's attempts to achieve his goals, while avoiding capture by a persistent detective. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi
