Movie Info

Audience Reviews for Throw Away Your Books, Rally In The Streets

  • Jul 31, 2011
    You could easily dismiss "Throw Away Your Books" at first sight, as nothing more than a product of 60s counter culture. The thing is, the movie resonates still to this day, and many things easily apply to any culture, not just modern Japan. Sexual relations, friendship, family, everything is either a joke, a charade or just never a honest thing. It's a honest reflexion on the frustrations of not only young people, but people from any age group. Even when the movie starts going heavily into "performance" mode it doesn't sabotage the entire thing.
