Description in Japanese

白い巨塔 / 邦画

[角川シネマコレクション] 山崎豊子原作の同名小説を初Blu-ray化! 誤診という名の殺人! 医学界の腐敗を暴く巨匠・山本薩夫渾身の大作! 発表以来何度も映像化されている小説「白い巨塔」を1966年に初めて映画化したのが本作。主演の財前五郎には田宮二郎。78年にフジテレビでドラマ化された時も同じ役を演じ、生涯の当たり役となった。共演には田村高廣、船越英二、東野英治郎、加藤武、小沢栄太郎、小川真由美など豪華共演。――大阪・浪速大学医学部では、第一外科の東教授の定年を控え、後任教授には若きエリート助教授・財前五郎が有力視されていた。しかし、野心家で傲慢な財前を人間的に嫌う東教授が対立候補を擁立したため、教授選へ向け熾烈な裏工作合戦が始まる。そんな折、財前は、同期の里見助教授から依頼された患者・佐々木庸平の胃に癌を発見するが、里見の忠告を無視して断層撮影をせずに手術した結果、肺転移により死亡させてしまう。財前は教授の座を手に入れたものの誤診で訴えられることとなる―。ブックレット封入。
