Directed by Yoji Yamada
With Kiyoshi Atsumi, Chieko Baisho and Sayuri Yoshinaga
Japan, 1972, 107 min.
In the historic, charming city of Kanazawa, Tora-san (Kiyoshi Atsumi) befriends a group of 3 young women who all adore Tora-san’s goofiness, but shy, pretty Utako particularly catches his eye. A few weeks later, Utako visits Tora-san in Shimabata to cheer her up when her grumpy father refuses to let her marry the man she loves.
The Best of Tora-san series began last October and celebrates both the 40th anniversary of the first Tora-san film and the 80th anniversary of Atsumi's birth.
