The Mad Fox

Koiya koi nasuna koi

Directed by Tomu Uchida
Japan, 1962
Drama, Fantasy, Avant-Garde


Colourful, wildly stylised, immense captivating fable, including animation, kabuki and butoh and collapsing sets. About a soothsayer at court who was driven to insanity by the murder of his lover and will marry her likeness. And indeed, she’s a fox in human form!
