Loosely based on the famous tale of Hizakurige, Yaji Kita Douchu Telesco is another take on the legendary journey of two friends; Yajirobe and Kitahachi who walked from Edo to Kyoto. It is a comic-buddy road trip film filled with humor and adventure. There are also many touching moments as the film explores the many sides of friendship. In this version of the classic story the men travel to Osaka in search of the legendary Telesco fish and its supposed healing powers. The movie was released in Japan this past November and received wide acclaim from audiences and critics alike. This movie stars Kanzaburo Nakamura, the famous Kabuki actor who was featured in Michel Delsol’s photography exhibition at the JICC in August and September. Kanzaburo performed at the Warner theater in July of 2007. Co-hosted with the Japan Commerce Association of Washington DC.
