Audience Reviews for Fighting Elegy

  • Nov 27, 2009
    Fighting Elegy is one of Suzuki's most restrained films, considering the fact that it was released in 1966, a year before he was fired from the Nikkatsu studio for his increasingly outrageous films. He does use some of his better known signatures such as unusual camera angles, editing, and few visual split screens. There are also moments of beauty, particularly some of the final shots. A scenario in which fascism is bred and shared in the growing youth of Japan, Fighting Elegy is not the ideal introduction to director Suzuki's films. Better to start with films such as Tokyo Drifter, Branded To Kill or Youth of the Beast. However, if you're already among the director's fans, I think you'll find this story very engaging. <a href="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/?action=view¤t=fightingelegy-1.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/fightingelegy-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    this film had the makings of what could have been a great film, but it made a few vital errors. the main character had some major contradiction in his character, the telling of the story was unreasonably choppy, and the end of the film fell very flat. even with these major issues the film was very entertaining and had a strong likeable quality. the film missed out on a chance at an epic fight scene at the mid point that i wish suzuki would have followed through on, but all in all this is a good flick for casual viewing.
