Movie Info

Bawdy but not explicit, this lusty Japanese farce tells the tale of teenage Shinohara who longs to join the well-muscled ultra macho ranks of Makio Mitani's patriotic fighters, a corps of handsome hunks first seen training in a local gym during the opening credits. Shinohara is delighted when he is accepted for enlistment. Following his initiation ceremony, Shinohara is assigned to senior member Takizawa's unit for further instructions. That night the youth learns more than a few lessons, but not about fighting. Instead he finds the whole unit engaged in an all-night debauched bout of boozing and vigorous homosexual activity. In the daytime he undergoes real military training for an upcoming government coupe. The soldiers and leaders realize that they will most likely fail and seem to eagerly anticipate the hara kari that is to follow their attack. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
