The film is told in three acts, beginning with a historical background of Japan's student movement of the 1960s and early 1970s, mostly using archive footage and a narrator. The second act follows the formation of the group to their mountain training camps in the southern Japanese Alps. It emphasizes the dogmatic (and eventually hypocritical) bullying of the group by Mori and Nagata, with 12 members being killed for infractions as small as improperly cleaning a gun, wearing make-up, and kissing. The third act shows the splitting up of the group after two members run off. It follows one group of five members to Karuizawa and a hostage-taking and police standoff known as the Asama-Sansō incident.

Ian M (jp) wrote: This movie is really cute. Great performances from Chris and Leelee to show you just how heart-wrenching love is whatever you have to go through. A really honest and beautiful film.
Sajin P (gb) wrote: MegRyan continues to be one of my favourite actresses and this movie is proof why. Andy Garcia also excelled as a loyal husband helping his wife get through her troubles.
Kerby H (br) wrote: To me, clearly the best of the three colors films. The character of Karol Karol is an excellent focus of the movie and he goes through a crazy series of events that really reels you in and is directed well.

Elgan D (kr) wrote: My second foray into the strange world of Alejandro Jodorowsky. Much like 'Santa Sangre' this picture brings a mixture of emotions, from amusement to repulsion to a certain amount of offence, particularly in the use of the Chilean directors own seven year old child. The first half of the film is better than the somehow even more jumbled second, but even then it's a never dull spectacle of disbelief.

Who can resist singing along with Danny Kaye to Thumbelina, The Ugly Duckling, Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen, No Two People Could Ever Be So In Love, The King Is In His Altogether, Inchworm, I'm Hans Christian Andersen? Classic.

Calvin R (nl) wrote: Elektra is indeed entertaining, but not enough to redeem itself. The story was good, but the execution was terrible. Decent peroformance, but it wasn't enough to make it strong to make it epic. Near the ending is when it was just like ok what the heck Rob Bowman. They need to remake this film. However it wasn't entirely bad. It was ok.
