There Is A Brotherhood Of Man

Tatsuo Saitô and Chishû Ryû are a couple of henpecked husbands who know each other from clubs and bars and brothels, although not by name. When Ryû's wife is done out of some goods at a Ginza department store by Saitô's wife, she insists he get the husband to apologize. They wind up by having to duel.

It's based on a story by Richard Connell, better known as the writer of "The Most Dangerous Game." He was a popular author of a wide variety of stories, and here's more evidence that the claims that Japanese cinema is a closed book to foreigners is so much balderdash. It's a highly amusing and mildly misogynistic movie.
