Synopsis:
Double bill of classic dramas from Japanese director Seijun Suzuki.

The Incorrigible (1963)
Sometime in the 1910's, when young rebel Konno Togo is thrown out of his religious school in Kobe for brawling and fraternising too closely with the local girls, his mother puts him under the trust of an acquaintance of hers, the principle of provincial Toyooka Junior High school. It is not long, however, before he is railing against the pecking order and internal politics of his new classroom peer group, and when the local beauty catches his eye, he is soon back to his wild old ways.
Born Under Crossed Stars (1965)
Growing up during the 1920's among the fields of rural Kawachi, Jukichi holds lofty ambitions to transcend his humble roots by graduating from his local middle school on to a prestigious grammar school in Kyoto, a desire strongly opposed by his good-for-nothing father. The immaculate girl-next-door Suzuko is the embodiment of his aspirations; beautiful, chaste, refined and with a taste for European culture. Jukichi's dreams nevertheless soon find themselves jeopardised by Jubei's wastrel existence, friction with Suzuko's brother Yoshio and the flirtatious provocations of the local pawnbroker's daughter Taneko.
