Actor/director Takeshi Kitano gives his most captivating performance yet as Kim Shunpei, a Korean immigrant in Japan whose life is a disturbing tableau of cruelty, abuse, and shocking violence. Kim is a despicable man who physically and emotionally assaults everyone around him - the workers at his fishcake factory, his mistress, his estranged wife, and his entire family. Ruthlessly pursuing success at any cost, he wastes away his earnings while keeping the people closest to him in desperate need. This film was adapted from the semi-autobiographical novel by Korean-Japanese author Yang Seok-Il.
