    Veteran Japanese filmmaker Yoji Yamada's 80th feature film concerns a mother living in 1940s-era Tokyo who is forced to care for her two daughters alone after her husband is jailed for expressing reformist views on the Japanese invasion of China. Professor Shigeru Nogami (Mitsugoro Bando) is an outspoken man with some particularly unpopular political views, and for his role in speaking out against the Japanese invasion of China he is promptly jailed. In the wake of his imprisonment, Professor Nogami's devoted wife, Kayo (aka Kabei, played by Sayuri Yoshinaga), is suddenly relegated to the status of single mother. As Kayo does the best to care for the couple's two young daughters, her stern policeman father (Umenosuke Nakamura) proves little help. Thankfully for Kayo and the two children, the people of the neighborhood are more concerned with the well-being of her family than her husband's political views. One of the professor's former students in particular, the clumsy but well-meaning Yamasaki (Tadanobu Asano), does his best to ensure that the Nogami family is properly cared for until the day his mentor can return. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

    Beat Takeshi Kitano directs and plays the title role in this tribute to the wildly popular "blind swordsman" of Japanese cinema who was the hero of more than 20 movies and a television series from the early '60s to the late '80s. In Kitano's version, Zatôichi wanders into a town harassed by criminal gangs, and helps two geishas take revenge on the men who murdered their parents. His mission leads him to a final, bloody confrontation with the gang's mastermind and his hired assassin (Tadanobu Asano), a swordsman with a reputation as lethal as Zatôichi. ~ Tom Vick, All Movie Guide

    Based on the cult Garo comic by famed manga artist Yoshiharu Tsuge, this film -- directed by veteran yakuza flick auteur Teruo Ishii -- is a hallucinogenic tale about love, death, dreams, and reality. Tsube (Tadanobu Asano) is a down-and-out cartoonist who can't cough up enough money to pay the rent. His live-in girlfriend Kuniko (Miki Fujitani) lands a job as a maid in an all-male company dormitory while Tsube crashes with a painter friend of his. Tsube soon realizes the pitfalls of this setup -- his friend tries to spoon up with him at night while he is driven mad with jealousy by flirtatious dorm residents. When the two finally break up after Kuniko succumbs to temptation and has a one-night stand, Tsube tries to kill himself by downing fistfuls of pills. He comes to in a hospital room as a nurse swaddles him in a diaper and as his smirking friend looks on. The youth goes to the countryside to convalesce and to piece his life together. Instead, he has a series of bizarre erotic encounters. A beautiful tavern hostess (Tsugumi) puts his hand under her top; an icy studio model (Mika Aoba) gives him a thorough tour of her naked body while taunting his apparent lack of interest; and an old maid who runs a restaurant shags him all night and casts him aside the following morning. ~ Jonathan Crow, All Movie Guide
