Originally Daiboken, this dark Japanese fantasy stars Hetoshi Ueki as an ambitious journalist. While investigating a gang of counterfeiter, Ueki makes an astonishing discovery: Adolf Hitler is alive and well and living in Japan. Unfortunately, the reporter has a reputation for fabricating stories, thus no one believes him. Meanwhile, Hitler-or at least a guy who looks an awful lot like him-plots and plans to take over the world with a fleet of battleships. Director Kengo Furusawa handles this material so well that he almost had us believing it.
