Mitani’s latest undertaking is a historical epic. Just before the unification of Japan, Oda was forced to take his own life at Honno-ji Temple during a violent revolt. Following Oda’s death, Japan held the Kiyosu Conference, the conference that changed the course of history, to resolve the Oda clan’s succession of leadership. “This film is not a comedy. It’s a Human Comedy” explains Mitani. In his new venture, Mitani portrays the people’s desperate lives during these times in a comedic yet endearingly human way. Be prepared to be entertained by a historical epic filled with laughter, surprise and drama!
