After graduating from high school in 1996 in Japan, Itō Kaiji moves to Tokyo to get a job, but he fails to find steady employment because of his eccentric disposition and because the country is mired in its first recession since World War II. Depressed, he festers in his apartment, biding the time with cheap pranks, gambles, liquor and cigarettes. Kaiji is always thinking about money and his perpetual poverty frequently brings him to tears.more

Audience Reviews for Kaiji: Jinsei gyakuten gêmu (Gambling Apocalypse Kaiji)

There's a good lesson in here about fighting for what you want. And the three big "games" are riveting. Sadly, the endless whining and melodrama that makes up the rest of the film is really wearing.
