The Sun Legend of the End of the Tokugawa Era

Bakumatsu taiyôden

directed by Yuzo Kawashima
Japan, 1957


The story is taken from rakugo (a traditional form of “sit-down” comedic narration), and focuses on the craftily versatile character of Saheiji, a man-about-town who gets stuck at a high-class brothel when he can’t pay the bill.
