Event description

Description

Celebrate the prelude to summer with us by immersing yourself in our feel-good comedy film season!

From wacky time-travel to ancient Rome and a musical extravaganza set in feudal Japan, to a slapstick twist on the film noir genre of the 60’s – our annual Pre-Summer Explorers season aims to make you shake and cry with laughter while presenting the multi-faceted and unique sense of humour in Japanese cinema.




Princess Raccoon

(Operetta tanuki goten, オペレッタ狸御殿)

The Lord of Castle Grace is accustomed to being the most handsome man in all the land. One day, however, his prophetess reveals a premonition – his son, Amechiyo (Joe Odagiri), will soon eclipse him and become far more handsome than he. Unable to bear this news, the Lord orders his son’s death, casting him away to Sacred Mountain where Amechiyo is found by the celestial Princess Raccoon (Zhang Ziyi) with whom he soon falls in love. A cult musical from the vintage master Seijun Suzuki.

Directed by Seijun Suzuki, 2005, 111 minutes, English Subtitles
