Trivia

During an exchange about half-way through the film, two characters are discussing the southern city Nagasaki, and they pronounce it 'NaNgasaki', which indicates the convention of speakers from Tokyo/Edo and the north of Japan, despite both characters notionally coming from the south (i.e. Osaka and Nagasaki), where terminal 'g' is not pronounced 'ng'.

It seems to really get behind this, you have to understand a couple of things before watching this movie. Like reading into the job description of our main character, who has to dress like a woman on stage, but also off stage at times. If that sounds confusing wait til you see the movie. But while it does make sense (especially the fact that you can remain hidden from people who should be able to identify you), it'll also might be deal breaker.

The version I saw played at the Festival in Berlin and we got a thorough introduction for the movie. It's really a good one, but as I said, can be very confusing (more than other movies). The movie also might feel more than dated to some, which is a fair assumption to make. Still, if you have love for Japanese cinema, you will watch it either way
