Tatsuo is contemplating marrying his girlfriend and on the lookout for a better-paying job. He joins the Yakuza and soon even gets to have his own little gang. But being a bit of an asshole, the small crime doesn’t quite do it for Tatsuo and he soon takes to raping girls around town. On one occasion, the rape and torture goes on for weeks and the gang loses all touch with what they’re up to.

Concrete is based on the real case of Junko Furuta, where many people including the bullied parents of some of the gang members were aware of what was going on and on.

This one is pretty rough.
Hard to believe the real crime was even worse.
In reality, the poor girl was not just raped by the boys but also by hundreds of men in the basement as well.

An even sadder thing to consider y’all is that none of those little fucks got what they deserved. But they did get extra time added when they went to a Judge to see if they could get their sentences lowered…(LOL!) Japs are still very big on that honor stuff and if you bring shame on them in the eyes of the rest of the world, you will be made aware of it in no uncertain terms! The Japanese authorities wanted to punish Issei Sagawa (Cannibal killer turned author & celebrity) for the dishonor he brought on them. But they could do nothing more than send him for a short stay at a mental institution because France’s wussy courts declared him insane & his crime was committed over there.

But getting back to the crime committed in this movie, I believe they each got eight years. Then up to 15 when they tried to appeal their original sentences. The presumed “Leader” (Who was rumored to have had Yakusa connections) ended up back in prison again for almost beating a guy to death over a girl they both wanted. How much time he got for that I don’t know. But I’m fairly certain that his previous record did not get him just slapped on his widdle pee-pee. (I would love to discover that he got the same Judge that raised his sentence for his participation in the killing of Junko Furuta!)

French justice-Limp wristed.
American justice-Tyrannical, Draconian.
Japanese justice-just about right.

Jeez, go read the Wiki entry of Murder of Junko Furuta – I have read some bad shit but this is like nothing I have ever read. They set fire to her at one point, but she survived, ah…….just read it, it is mind blowing and really quite upsetting….!!!!

And keep up the good work, such an awesome site……thanks…..

Some scenes tough to watch, horrible it was based on a true crime. Too bad the boys did not get what they deserved for this. I was not board watching this one at all. Thanks

Ok I honestly have not watched this movie yet or even heard of it or the crime so after reading comments I’m just a little nervous. Coming from extreme abuse I’m very sensitive to anyone being hurt or abused especially children and animals and I’m strongly against it all and what makes it more horrible is that this really happened and probably more severe then whatever is in the movie. But I am curious I guess. I love this site a lot but get myself in trouble many times with movies I know better to stay away from but find myself watching. Anyway thanks to the owner for the movies and to all who left comments. I think I will try the movie out

Just read about the case online and I’m seriously sick to my stomach of what that poor girl went through. Those sick evil fucks . Im pissed and not even sure I want to see this movie but the weird side of me is curious. I don’t know why I like to push my own sanity when there is barely any left. Oh well

The fact that it was based on a real story was really effed up,and a lot of yakuza members enjoyed free attendance aswell. I couldn’t really enjoy it and as a movie it was weak as well.

Was expecting something more, considering the case is based on.
It wasn’t bad but could have been better.

I’m gonna be honest, I was kind of disappointed the movie was based on true events but a lot of the events were not true, for example she died from shock when they lit her on fire so many times, and she never escaped during the actual case, also the acting wasn’t too great considering the seriousness of the crime and I was disappointed that the movie seemed to revolve more around Osugi rather than the girl and that upset me because she should have been the main problem not him

It’s based on Jôji Atsumi’s non-fiction novel; ‘JUUNANA-SAI: AKU NO RIREKISHO’… “Seventeen, Evil Resume” is a translation of the book’s title.
Peruse and enucleate, my little kumquats 🙂

The boys together with their messed-up families, and the whole gang should have been sentenced to death. If refused, the authorities needs death too, need to be ripped apart in the middle of the crowd. Too much corruption in this world. Death!!

The problem with this movie is the editing. The first 39 minutes weren’t good and not really needed to tell the story. I was bored to the point I almost stopped it, but I kept going because I know the story of the real girl this happened to, Junko Furuta. In all honesty though, skip the first 39 minutes and spare yourself from the intense boredom if you’re already aware of the backstory of the case. Basically, she turns him down, he gets pissed about it, and then they take her.

this only touches the surface of what was actually done to this poor innocent girl. None of them felt sorry for the their crime, the brutal torture they did to Junko. They all served minimal prison time and 3 out of the 4 that are less than animals have long since passed away. Hope their soul suffers for all eternity, if they actually had one.

Rip Junko Furuta. I watched some of it on YouTube, while still angry at what the evil school dropouts, gang rapists and low yakuza wannabes had done. You just don’t do that, total psychotic.
