We Make Antiques! (2018)

Uso happyaku (original title)

Director: Masaharu Take
Writer: Shin Adachi (screenplay)
Stars: Kiichi Nakai, Kuranosuke Sasaki

Set in Sakai, Osaka Prefecture, Japan. Norio (Kiichi Nakai) works as an antique dealer and Sasuke (Kuranosuke Sasaki) is a potter. Important historical figure Sen no Rikyu’s chaki (tea utensil) appears in front of them.

★★★✮☆

I really appreciate how Japanese makes movies–they include as much intricate details. When in flights, I usually just watch light movies, and this one is so worth it! Not only is it entertaining because of the comedy factor, but also for its art content.
