ABOUT THE FILM

Yoshihiko is a chameleon-like “Yankee” (punk) at his high-school which is a notorious institution where “bad boys” are sent. He has to pretend he is one of their kind in order not to stand out from the others at the school -- but he is in fact one of the top intelligent students. A true punk, Kiyoshi, asks Yoshihiko to tutor his younger brother, Gunji. At that point, Yoshihiko's life takes a tragic turn.

agree, 某漫画を彷彿とさせる面白さがあります。コメディとしてのクオリティーは十分にあると思います。独特の映像の質感が良いです!

楽しんで見られました。最初の吉彦と清の会話の時点で、すぐに作品に入ることが出来ました。というのも、二人の絶妙な演技とリズム間ある構成が見事だったからだと思います。
