This feature is the directorial debut for film critic and writer Masato Harada. Dan-san (Takuzo Kawatani), a young man who is obsessed with movies and women, offers a hilarious impression of Marlon Brando and makes friends with movie maven Shuma (Naohiko Shigeta). Shuma becomes infuriated when Dan-san attempts to interfere with his romance with the low-life gutter girl Minami (Atsuko Asano). The director shows his obvious affection for the styles of gangster films, tawdry saloons, and pop music, with more than a passing nod to Martin Scorsese.
