Not uttering so much as a word, a man decides to go on a hunger strike, creating a great deal of confusion all around him, as well as media expectation. For his long-awaited return to directing, Masao Adachi wanted to adapt one of Kafka’s most famous stories, taking it to contemporary Japan in the form of an absurd comedy.
Along with Koji Wakamatsu, he co-directed the controversial and politically radical The Red Army / PFLP: Declaration of World War (71). Considered suspicious by law enforcement agencies, he wasn’t allowed to direct again until 2007, with the premiere of The Prisoner/Terrorist.
