Relying on the aesthetic and the political role of Seijun Suzukiís film Branded to Kill, the final film of the directorís early genre phase (1957-67), as well as on the entire life and work of this cult director, the author analyses the film Fighting Elegy (1966), Suzukiís metaphor of Japanís militarism and colonialism. With its open structure and unusual combinations of genre motifs (Suzuki uses the motifs typical of comedy, grotesque, melodrama, teenage drama, martial arts film, and political film), the film possesses an important rhetoric potential. Furthermore, the author explains the meaning and the manner of presenting Suzukiís meta elements in the film.
