Naked Youth

Nagisa Oshima – Japan – 1960


CHF 17.90 / EUR 16.60

Naked Youth (Cruel Story of Youth) focuses on a couple of teenage lovers who declare: «We have no dreams, so we won’t see them destroyed.» Emblems of the alienated youth culture that had emerged in Japan, the two rebels lounge in sleazy bars, make love in brackish industrial backwaters, roar through Tokyo on a motorcycle, attempting to achieve total freedom but finding only its opposite. Naked Youth proved the seminal work, the Breathless, of the Japanese New Wave.

«A sexual relationship with another brings about a connection with all humanity: by embracing one person, you are able to embrace all humanity.»  Nagisa Oshima
