The Family Game

Author/Director: Yoshimitsu Morita

MLTC ID: 6162

Media Type: DVD
Language: Japanese

Library Resource

A sendup of the
stereo-typical Japanese family: dad is a salaryman jerk, unable to
relate to anyone; mom is a hopeless housewife; the older son is a
moderate academic success; but the younger son is a rebellious goof-off
for whom a tutor must be hired. The tutor, played by the prototypical
bad-boy actor Matsuda Yusaku, proceeds to blow the entire family apart
(Matsuda's role is modeled on the myth of Susano-o no mikoto, the
renegade deity who figures in the Kojiki)
