The wild bunch, bold cinematic rebels and adventurous films
| 63 minutes | 1984
The first film by Masayuki Suo, celebrated internationally for Shall We Dance (and its US remake with Richard Gere). Sceptical about the perfect family? This sexy comedy will reassure you. Think you know your Ozu? Then this 80s cult flick has a few surprises in store. Meet the Mamiyas, whose amiably over-sexed eldest son has just brought home his voluptuous bride. A bawdy pastiche of the films by the legendary Yasujiro Ozu, it’s either out-and-out blasphemy or just an irreverent homage, mischievous and absurd, filtering modern-day morality through the prism of Eros. You be the judge. NEWLY RESTORED VERSION"One of the wittiest [films] in the genre" Behind the Pink Curtain: The Complete History of Japanese Sex Cinema"... a rock solid pinku with a level of artistry that only the best of the genre manage to achieve." Mondo Exploito"... full of nods to Ozu’s cinematic universe that will delight (or deeply offend) fans of the Japanese cinema master." Japan Society
