Yûzô Kawashima directs Furankî Sakai, Sachiko Hidari and Yôko Minamida in this Japanese period comedy where a conman runs up a huge bill at a brothel and becomes an integral member of the business paying off his debt.
Light hearted fun. Like a Robert Altman film this is packed with small side characters and cheeky interactions away from the winning, fast-talking protagonist. A good companion piece to Kawashima’s Red Light District.
