Directed by Jun Kawaguchi, Crazy Monkey follows Japanese wrestler Jun Kasai the man known as the “Charisma of Death Match.” It shows why Death Matches are still valid in terms of popularity, both in Japan and abroad. We see his long absence for half year, and the current life of a professional fighter like him in an unprecedented situation such as the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Kasai revealed “After writing a book and filming a movie, you may think that Kasai is almost retiring, but don’t worry, I haven’t retired yet (laughs). I think both books and movies are works that make life go crazy in a good way. I hope they are works that push the backs of people who have no courage, worries or conflicts.”
