Night And Fog In Japan
(Nihon no yoru to kiri)

by Nagisa OSHIMA


Autumn 1960. Two students belonging to different political movements celebrate their marriage. For Professor Udagawa, who makes the opening address of the new university year, this symbolizes the reconciliation of two generations. The guests, students and militants, comment on this view. Generations and views clash with growing fury.Thus entitled in tribute to Alain Resnais’ NUIT ET BROUILLARD (1955), Oshima shot this flm more or less without the Shochiku Studio’s knowledge, dealing with a hot political topic that would be the object of intense controversy. The filmmaker made a political and anti-establishment flm of great formal richness at a time when the student movements were developing and acquiring a political voice.
