Winner of the Palme d'Or at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, this masterpiece from Shohei Imamura is a bold, frequently offbeat exploration of crime and punishment, guilt and redemption, and the elusive possibility of salvation through love. Koji Yakusho stars as an ex-con, paroled after eight years in prison for killing his adulterous wife. Isolated from those around him, his only bond is with the eel he adopted as a pet while behind bars. A new woman in his life presents a chance for renewal, but the past won't leave the couple alone. "...there is an invisible mastery in The Eel, a technique beyond technique" (Dave Kehr, Film Comment). In Japanese with English subtitles. Letterboxed. Includes theatrical trailer, cast & director profiles, and filmographies. Shohei Imamura Japan 1997 117 mins.
