The Cats decide the only way to take Bussan to Tokyo is to kidnap him, but once there his strange behavior embarrasses them. A chance encounter with an old friend, Little Yamada, who has become a big...
The show revolves around Rakugo, a traditional Japanese comedy that can look back on a 400 year long history. It tells about a Yakuza who goes to a Rakugo performer to collect debts, and a talented comedian who tries to change his destiny.
I watched this movie on the plane from Japan to Amsterdam and i enjoyed watching it. This is what the movie is about: "Bussan has just been told for the third time that he has six months to live. Sick of his inaccurate prognoses from his doctor, he decides to get on with his life"
This is just the basic plot of the movie, the actual storyline is really bizarre. The movie uses a lot of "quentin style flashbacks" which come out very cool. The special effects have a anime feel to them and are made with an eye for detail.
The comedyparts of the movie are sometimes hilarious and really really funny. But for the most part they're just entertaining. It stopped me from being bored on the plane and actually watched it twice :)
I give this movie a 7/10
