Juvenile Crime DVD
"Gunji Kawasaki's 1997 movie Juvenile Crime (Shônen no hanzai) was based on the same real-life murder case as Katsuya Matsumura's 1995 movie Concrete-Encased High School Girl Murder Case (Joshikôsei konkurîto-zume satsujin-jiken) and Hiromu Nakamura's 2004 movie Concrete (Konkurîto). It has been mistaken for Matsumura's movie by a number of bootleggers.
The screenplay for Juvenile Crime was written by Kawasaki. The movie starred (listed order corresponds to order on VHS and DVD covers) Nao Ôtake, Hajime Mao, Kazu Itsuki, Kôichi Imaizumi, Masayoshi Nogami (a.k.a. Seigi Nogami), Yumi Yoshiyuki, Reiko Aoki, Seiji Nakamitsu, and Rina Matsuoka. It was produced by Shungo Kaji." - Some Japanese Website
" Gunji Kawasaki’s 1997 movie “Juvenile Crime” aka “Schoolgirl in Cement” was based on the same real-life murder case as Katsuya Matsumura’s 1995 movie “Concrete-Encased High School Girl Murder Case” and Hiromu Nakamura’s 2004 movie “Concrete.” It has been mistaken for Matsumura’s movie by a number of bootleggers. In November of 1988 four young men abducted and held Furuta for several weeks in the house of one of the captors. The girl was violently raped and subjected to torture and sexual degradation for example she was forced to masturbate. On 4th January 1989 four sadists beat her with an iron barbell, poured lighter fluid on her legs, arms, face and stomach, and immolated her. She died later that day of shock and her mutilated corpse was hidden in an oil-drum filled with cement." - TMDB
"Yet another re-telling of the infamous "concrete-encased high school girl murder case" of Junko Furuta, Juvenile Crime is a nasty piece of low-budget exploitation. Gunji Kawasaki's cheap, handheld aesthetic only makes me the film more uncomfortable to watch." - Blair Hoyle
