Institute History


Slacker pizza boy falls in love with a young woman waiting for a pizza
"Go! Heatman! is a rock'n'roll, coming-of-age road movie about Kosuke, a misunderstood youth who scooters, races, and revel-yells his way across Japan. It may 1,200 kilometers from Tokyo to Nagasaki, but he's determined; he's a man with a mission—a man with a piping-hot pizza to deliver to the woman he loves.

Yazaki's film is part Easy Rider, part pizza boy a-go-go. His energetic direction and bemused compassion for teenage trials and tribulations make for a fun ride, as our high school hero roars down the road on his trusty scooter, determined to find his on true love."
