Singing Love Birds
(Oshidori Uta Gassen)

by Masahiro MAKINO

singing lovebirds_1

One of Japan’s first auteurs (and son of the pioneering Shozo Makino), Masahiro Makino here offers a lively Japanese musical that follows a love story between a samurai and a courtesan during the Edo period of Japan. Poor young Oharu (Ichikawa Haruyo) loves her ronin neighbour, but is under pressure to marry a lord (Dick Mine) because of the debts owed by her umbrella-making father (famed character actor Shimura Takashi).
