The first film adaptation of “The Catch,” set in a mountain village in Japan toward the end of the Pacific War.


Based on a novel by Novel Prize in Literature winner Kenzaburo Oe, this film is an intense portrait of Japanese hypocrisy and xenophobia. During the last summer of WWII, a black American pilot is captured by the inhabitants of a village and soon becomes the scapegoat for all their problems.
