Sex & Nudity

  • There is a reference to a Geisha party hosted for government officials
  • There is a scene where two men attend a striptease show. Even though the dancer is covered by sheer material, veils and scarves, her for can be seen through the fabric, especially her buttocks. There is no actual bare nudity seen here but it is very suggestive. The camera pans down to her lower leg area (and the faces of our two characters) and based on the reaction of the audience, it is suggested that she removed the covering of her upper body.

Violence & Gore

  • A man is threatened by men who are implied to be gangsters. They threaten his life, although they never follow through.


  • Some minor profanity ("hell"). One use of "f_ck" which appears in the English subtitles.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Throughout the film characters drink sake. This ranges from mild social drinking, to men drinking till drunk, to a man drinking till he is extremely drunk even though he has stomach cancer and knows drinking the quantities he drinks will only hasten his death.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Viewers that are sensitive, especially when it comes to natural death, particularly cancer, may be upset by this film.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • Throughout the film a man is dying of stomach cancer. In the end he is said to have died peacefully in a park.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The film is a somewhat somber and sad tale of a man who is given the worst news possible (indirectly) and realizes he has given the last 30 years of his life to a thankless and unrewarding job. While he slaves away like a machine, he realizes virtually all the important milestones in life have passed him by until the moment he has an epiphany that will give his life true meaning...and he will not take NO for an answer.
