Rakugo Eiga is a film featuring Japan's traditional art, 'rakugo' as its theme. It is a modern adaptation of three rakugo tales presented in three short films(the first tale, ''Before After'' which based on the rakugo "Nezumii" or "Rat";the second one, ''Life Rate'' which based on the rakugo "Shinigami(The Death)" or "The Reaper"; the last one, ''Sarugoke wa Tsuraiyo'' which based on rakugo "Sarugoke" or "Monkey Widow"). It is quite the challenge to not only turn rakugo into film, but to set such stories in modern society. However, the efforts of young creators from the best art school in Japan, The University of the Arts, made it possible. Written by
