A sendup of the stereo-typical Japanese family: dad is a salaryman jerk, unable to relate to anyone; mom is a hopeless housewife; the older son is a moderate academic success; but the younger son is a rebellious goof-off for whom a tutor must be hired. The tutor, played by the prototypical bad-boy actor Matsuda Yusaku, proceeds to blow the entire family apart (Matsuda's role is modeled on the myth of Susano-o no mikoto, the renegade deity who figures in the Kojiki) Director: Morita, Yoshimitsu || Length: 01:46:00 || The Dept. of MLCL, Boston University Center for the Study of Asia, the Boston University's Geddes Language Center, and the Japanese Student Association are pleased to present the Spring 2014 Japanese Film Series. Films will be screened at the Geddes Center on the fifth floor of CAS starting at 6:30 p.m. All films will be subtitled.
