Doing Time (刑務所の中 Keimusho no Naka) is a 2002 Japanese movie based on an autobiographical Kazuichi Hanawa manga and directed by Yoichi Sai.


Hanawa and his four cellmates actually seem to enjoy the mundaneness of prison life and the regimented style of living it provides. Over the course of their sentence together they have detailed conversations about every insignificant topic imaginable and center their seemingly serene existence around mealtime.
