The funeral Osōshiki

Nyū Senchurī Purodyūsāzu. ニューセンチュリープロデューサーズ, Itami Purodakushon, 伊丹プロダクション

DVD - 2022

In the wake of her father's sudden passing, a successful actor (Itami's wife and frequent collaborator, Nobuko Miyamoto) and her lascivious husband leave Tokyo and return to her family home to oversee a traditional funeral. Over three days of mourning that bring illicit escapades in the woods, a surprisingly materialistic priest, and cinema's most epic sandwich handoff, the tensions between public propriety and private hypocrisy are laid bare. Deftly weaving dark comedy with poign...ant family drama, The Funeral is a fearless satire of the clash between old and new in Japanese society in which nothing, not even the finality of death, is off-limits.
