六十年代日本發生大規模學生運動。 1971年一羣激進的年輕人組織了聯合赤軍,企圖發動一場社會革命。1972年,聯合赤軍佔領了長野縣的一家療養院「淺間山莊」。他們脅持管理人的妻子,並和包圍山莊的警察展開槍戰。本片抽絲剝繭地講述這宗淺間山莊事件的來龍去脈。影片雖長達三個多小時,卻充滿無比驚人的力量,令人看得無法鬆一口氣,是若松後期的代表傑作,也是他集一生反國家權力、嚮往革命主題的大成之作。片中若松對社會運動和任何權力組織(無論是國家機構還是反國家的運動團體)的徹底批判,對在革命之路中不幸喪生的年輕人的同情,都令人無法不悲痛動容。

Large-scale student protests erupted in Japan in the 1990s. In 1971, a group of young radicals founded the United Red Army with the aim of igniting a revolution. In 1972, the group took Asama Sanso, a mountain lodge in Nagano Prefecture, by force. They held the lodge’s caretaker and his wife hostage and had a shootout with the police. This film painstakingly chronicles the ins and outs of the Red Army’s self-destruction. Despite its epic three-hour length, the film is charged with exceptional power and intensity. Wakamatsu’s late period masterpiece is also a summation of his lifelong fascination with anti-establishment and revolutionary ideals. Whether they are government agencies or anti-government organisations, Wakamatsu has ruthlessly criticised these power systems. His sympathy lies with the young people who lost their lives in search of revolution, leaving viewers with a feeling of profound sorrow.
