Seishun zankoku monogatari (A Story of the Cruelties of Youth)(Naked Youth)
Thrill-seeking but nice girl Miyuki Kuwano gets rescued by when-I-feel-like-it student Yusuke Kuwazu when her hitchhiking turns ugly, but hey, chivalry is dead as, after he satisfies her "curiosity" about men on a flowing log jam, they start playing these badger games for real.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An anti-Ozu film that offers an embittered take on the moral disillusionment of youth in a changing postwar Japan."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
