Flighty young nurse Izumi Asakura longs to have her honeymoon in a far off tropical paradise but her doctor husband feels that he cannot afford to take time off from developing his career. To Izumi's dismay, Wakabakai General Hospital is fast becoming a far less pleasant place to work, thanks to the appointment of a militaristic chief nurse who demands steadfast adherence to protocol. Things get much worse, however, via the arrival of Saruwatari, a hypochondriac desperate to be re-admitted so that he can enjoy the attentions of nurse Shoko Ozaki. When the chief nurse has him ejected by security, Saruwatari comes back armed and takes everyone on the floor hostage. Shoko happened to be on her lunch break at the time and has trouble getting back into the building when the police swarm around it en masse. The authorities are not sure just how to deal with the situation, though, since the "victims" seem to be taking things far less seriously than they are. Written by Anon

Not So Good
29 March 2006 | by lia00027See all my reviews

I won't recommend this movie to anyone since it's not a good movie. The whole story is nonsense although sometimes it's quite funny. However I don't like the story because it's not focus in the couple's story but it has too many characters. Fujiki is quite funny but not that funny and the whole movie seemed rubbish especially the ending,it didn't explain much when she's survived from the shot. I feel deep regret after buy this movie. Actually it isn't that bad if the story can be more focused in the couple's story and make it makes sense. Hope they will make better movie.

A shameful for Japan movies that usually good, this one is terrible.
