Pigs and Battleships/Stolen Desire, Blu-ray


Two films by Japanese New Wave director Shôhei Imamura. 'Pigs and Battleships' (1961) is set in the gangster-ridden underworld of the seaside town of Yokosuka.

Young lovers Kinta and Haruko must overcome all kinds of unlikely obstacles in their quest to be together, including the fallout of the American occupation, underworld hypochondria and pig husbandry. 'Stolen Desire' (1958), Imamura's directorial debut, tells the riotous tale of a troupe of itinerant actors who routinely spice up their traditional kabuki theatre with striptease shows.
