Synopsis by Robert Firsching
Acclaimed director Seijun Suzuki's first film for Shochuku Studios is a disappointing comedy of interest to completists only. Ken Hagiwara stars as a Japanese naniwa-bushi singer who travels to the United States with his wife, dreaming of fame and fortune. What might have played as an interesting culture-clash comedy is instead a slapdash affair with little creativity or genuine humor. Yuko Tanaka and Kenji Sawada fail to improve matters any.
