High schooler Kiroku Nanbu yearns for the prim, Catholic Michiko, but her only desire is to reform Kiroku's sinful tendencies. Hormones raging, Kiroku channels his unsatisfied lust into the only outlet available: savage, crazed violence. The Born Fighter is a unique masterpiece in the diverse career of director Suzuki, combining the director's signature bravura visual style with a brilliantly focused satire of machismo and fascism.
