Kon Ichikawa

Progressive for the time of its production, this black comedy follows the undoing of a married TV producer and womaniser as the women in his life join forces in conspiring to kill him. Starring many of Japan’s biggest film stars, this stylish work by the director of Tokyo Olympiad is a rare treat.
