The story is about a popular poet, Goku Katsumaru, who grows depressed when his editor jokingly implies that he is a “sell-out to his times.” Around Goku appear first a “Team of Pickpockets With Plans to Steal Time” and, later, the Bird Doctor, who develops his research on migrating birds and, in particular, their internal clocks, “to liberate himself from the bonds of time.” Goku, who now dreams of becoming a poet for all time, employs the knowledge he has acquired from these men and travels from a field in the Hachioji suburbs of Tokyo all the way to the Galapagos Islands, where he attempts a total transcendence. The film is both an incredible adventure story as well as the kitsch formulation of a new “myth.” – KK
