A distraught youth is troubled by his mother's new relationship with her sailor boyfriend who occasionally drops by when his ship is in. The sailor (Kris Kristofferson) is a caring man who offers a supportive relationship to the woman as well as a kind word for the youth. In his confused and addled adolescent state (which isn't helped any by his association with a local perverted youth) the boy plans a vengeful rite for his mother's beau. ~ All Movie Guide

Unusual & Disquieting by randomcha May 21, 2005 - 8:00 AM PDT

Surely one of the most visually arresting films of the 70s, drenched with lovely seacoast scenery & spectacular vistas. It all meshes brilliantly with a disturbing story that gets under your skin in a way that's hard to describe. Having read the novel, I can say that the film is extremely faithful to Mishima, and even sharpens his themes (how fascism is born, the dysfuntion of family, the fruitless search for perfection and purity). The child actors are extremely well-cast. Definitely worth a look.
