‘Osaka Hamlet’

Director: Fujiro Mitsuishi Cast: Keiko Matsuzaka, Ittoku Kishibe
2009 | 107min. | PG

Award-winning stories about Osaka dwellers.

After the father’s sudden death, the cheerful, hard-working Fusako is holding together the Kubo family of three growing sons. Then a mysterious man appears, claiming to be the dead father’s younger brother, and the easygoing Fusako lets him move in. The sons are puzzled by this unusual turn of events, but are then distracted by problems of their own. Based on an award-winning manga series, the film paints a heart-warming portrait of ordinary people facing extraordinary circumstances in a working-class district of Osaka.

Presented by Consulate-General of Japan in Auckland, The Japan Foundation
Supported by The University of Waikato

    大阪ハムレット?
    知りませんでした!!
    けれど、ちょっとググったらすごく面白そうです。
    とりあえず、 CRIMINAL MINDS を観終わったら、みようかな。(現在シリーズ5です。)笑

    はい、ちょっと変わったお話でした。話の中でヤンキーの高校生がハムレットを大阪弁で暗誦するシーンがあっておもしろかったです。
