(Tange Sazen Yo Hyakuman Rÿo no Tsubo)

by Sadao YAMANAKA

the_pot_worth_a_million_ryo_2

A man gives away a crusty pot he inherited, but embarks on a madcap hunt to retrieve it, after discovering that it contains a treasure map. Ending with a humanist message about the inexorable role of chance in human affairs, it features a fantastic performance by the iconic Denjiro Okochi. This highly enjoyable, comical take on the stereotypically sombre samurai genre comes from Sadao Yamanaka, a filmmaker and leader of the Narutaki cinephile group of Kyoto (who wrote under a collective pseudonym).
