Modern People
Ogino, a government official, gets involved in his colleagues’ corrupt activities to pay for his sick wife’s hospital bills. At first, his young and serious colleague Odagiri refuses to partake in them, but when he falls in love with Ogino’s daughter, he too becomes irrevocably caught up in the maelstrom of violence and crime. The film is excessive in terms of form and content.
