Lost in Translation
The film is an SF satire about an elderly man at the mercy of his robot bed, which suddenly escapes and causes havoc in Japan. The script was by Katsuhiro Otomo, who also co-created the mechanical design. In addition, Roujin Z had art design by future director Satoshi Kon.
The film was released to British cinemas in 1994, and came out as a videotape from Manga Entertainment the same year. However, the videotape has been long deleted.
