Yoshimitsu Morita (森田 芳光, Morita Yoshimitsu?, 25 January 1950 – 20 December 2011) was a Japanese film director. Self-taught, he made his debut in 1981. In 1983 he won acclaim for his movie Kazoku Gēmu (The Family Game), which was voted the best film of the year by Japanese critics. This black comedy dealt with then-recent changes in the structure of Japanese home life. It also earned him the Directors Guild of Japan New Directors Award.
Morita has been nominated for eight Japanese Academy Awards, winning the 2004 Best Director award for Ashura no Gotoku. He also won the award for best director at the 21st Yokohama Film Festival for Keiho, and the award for best screenplay at the 18th Yokohama Film Festival for Haru. —Wikipedia
