Japanese society's labyrinthine complexity offers yet another surprise in Matatabi, a film that follows the adventures of a group of "toseinin." Toseinin are country boys who wander around offering their complete loyalty and service to anyone who gives them even the barest welcome. The story is largely comic until one of the young men is compelled by this code of honor to kill his own father.
