Austin Film Society says
Directed by Seijun Suzuki
Japan, 1957, 35mm, 77 min., B&W
In Japanese with English Subtitles

-------------------------------------------------------

Given a fairly routine melodrama script about a bus loaded with passengers fleeing a typhoon and hijacked by gangsters, Seijun Suzuki played it for laughs, which did not endear him to his bosses at the Nikkatsu studio, who partially re-edited the film. What's left is bizarre and appropriate to the career of the maverick Suzuki.
