Nijusseiki Shonen Dokuhon Details


Jinta (Hiroshi Mikami) and Wataru (Shu Ken) are brothers in training to become circus performers. One of their specialties is sleight of hand. Jinta, the older boy, is not enthusiastic about circus life. A little later, the film shows that they are both headliners at the circus they perform in. Then, Jinta leaves the circus to become a con-man. His activities come to the notice of the Yakuza, and he is forced to join one of their gangs. While that has been going on Wataru and his girlfriend have been coping with the ups and downs of circus life, all the while hoping that Jinta would return to them. Jinta eventually falls in love with the girlfriend of one of the Yakuza's clients, and the two of them kill the man and go on the run from the gangs. A poetically filmed chase scene takes them through a forest to the climactic moment in the film. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
