Shinobu Terajima, Keigo Kasuya. Set during the time of the Second Sino-Japanese War, Caterpillar tells the story of a Japanese soldier who returns home horrifically mutilated. Lieutenant Kurokawa is literally nothing but a human torso: he has lost both his arms and legs, and with burns covering half his face, he is also unable to speak. His wife, Shigeko, is given the grueling task of looking after him, which, in addition to feeding and washing him, includes the job of satisfying his sexual desires—impulses that remain as strong as ever in spite of his disabled condition. From acclaimed director Koji Wakamatsu. In Japanese with English subtitles. 2011/color/85 min/NR/widescreen.
