Chiyari Fuji

Directed by Tomu Uchida

Synopsis

First post-war film by Uchida is an undisputed masterpiece. The violence is a long time coming, in this riotous film about a samurai who has to deliver a teacup to the imperial city. Filled with sidelines and subplots, with a broad spectrum of characters, classes and traditions.
