  1. dionysus67's rating of the film Tange Sazen and the Pot Worth a Million Ryo

    Extremely funny, well-photographed and perceptive in its moral message, this is a delightful comedy about the search of a lottery ticket, where what turns out being more important is the way towards the target rather than the (monetary) reward itself. Beyond satirizing Japanese genre it is a great parable on 'debt', 'exchange-value', gender power games, childhood culminating in an Aristophanes-like moral resolution.

  4. joey Noodles's rating of the film Tange Sazen and the Pot Worth a Million Ryo

    Absolutely fantastic stuff. This is a very certain mood change for Yamanaka, his other two surviving films are sombre and bleak but here he infuses the frame with more playful staging and characters creating a hugely entertaining and expertly crafted screwball comedy. 5/5

  6. Holyphool's rating of the film Tange Sazen and the Pot Worth a Million Ryo

    Yamanaka's simple shooting style, with beautiful frames one wants to linger over, dominate this hilarious tale of a pot that goes missing that has a map to buried treasure on it. As the characters in ever-increasing comical greed try and search for it, they dont realise that it is right under their hot noses and belongs to a child who keeps his goldfish in it. Scar-eyed, one armed Denjiro Okochi is magnificent.

  7. Benjamin Crais's rating of the film Tange Sazen and the Pot Worth a Million Ryo

    I enjoyed the film's light sense of humor and Yamanaka's empathy for his characters.
