ACF 228: Tora-san's Old Home at Japan Society this Friday, February 13th, 2009

Tora-san's Dear Old Home
Episode 9 - Otoko wa Tsuraiyo: Shibamatabojo
Directed by Yoji Yamada
With Kiyoshi Atsumi, Chieko Baisho and Sayuri Yoshinaga
Japan, 1972, 107 min.

Japan Society's monthly screening of episodes selected by director Yamada from the long-running Tora-san film series continues this Friday, February 13, 2009 at 7:30 PM with Tora-san's Dear Old Home.

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.
