A comment on: two Egyptian and Palestinian films & A Japanese Novel of Akira Yoshimura: One Man’s Justice

A common theme in the Japanese Novel: One Man’s Justice of Akira Yoshimura, and the two Egyptian and Palestinian films, which I have seen yesterday at Cinemateket: Yomeddine of A.B.Shawky, & Screwdriver of Areen Omari…..is the loneliness of the marginal protagonist acing the cruelty of the social system—-Takuya in Akra’s novel, Ziad in Areen’s film and Beshay, suffering from Leprosy, in Shawky’s film……revenge leads to nowhere.
