EVERYTHING GOES WRONG (Subete ga kurutteru) (1960) * with hard-encoded English subtitles *

Tamio Kawachi Ryoko Nezu Shinsuke Ashida Tomoko Naraoka


On the brink of adulthood, Jirô Sugita is an angry young man. He hangs around with a large group of similarly aged youth, and in the absence of knowing how he should act, he emulates the actions of those around him. As they revere money and understand the need for money to get what they want in life, Jirô begins to commit petty crimes, such as muggings. While a number of the girls are attracted to him, especially Toshimi Tani who secretly or not so secretly is in love with him, he treats them poorly, considering them all to be whores. The two issues of money and considering females whores are strengthened, when Etsuko Shimojô needs money for an abortion. Jirô even considers his widowed mother, Masayo Sugita, a whore, because his father was accidentally run over by a Japanese tank during WWII. While Masayo formerly was a geisha, Jirô negatively views her in light of the fact that she has accepted the assistance of married businessman Keigo Nambara, a military equipment engineer, since her widowhood. In the process, they have fallen in a sort of love with each other, while Jirô considers him the cause of his father's death being that he's a military equipment supplier. He's just a feast-in-waiting for any psychologist he runs into.
