SHORT TAKES

"Tsukiji Uogashi Sandaime"


Director: Shingo Matsubara

News photo

Language: Japanese

This adaptation of a popular manga series follows Shuntaro (Takao Osawa), a successful businessman working for a trading company, who steps into the world of Tsukiji Fish Market as temporary help for a fish wholesaler run by his girlfriend's father. Shuntaro struggles away and becomes so fascinated with the market's customs and workers that he quits his job and works there full-time. This is a good old-fashioned folksy comedy with a simple and clear-cut plot. Recommended for those who love the "Tora-san" series.
