A Sun-Tribe Myth From the Bakumatsu Era Blu-ray

Posted March 14, 2013 04:15 PM by Webmaster

Eureka EntertainmentBritish distributors Eureka Entertainment have officially announced their upcoming Blu-ray release of Japanese director Yz Kawashima's Bakumatsu taiy-den a.k.a A Sun-Tribe Myth From the Bakamatsu Era (1957). The release will be available for purchase on April 22.

Voted one of the top five Japanese films ever made in a critic's poll by Japan's leading cinema publication Kinema Junp, yet barely known in the West, Yz Kawashima's richly funny multi-levelled portrait of Japanese society Bakumatsu taiy-den a.k.a A Sun-Tribe Myth from the Bakumatsu Era is a glorious rediscovery.

When man-about-town Saheiji (the beloved comedian Frankie Sakai) finds himself unable to pay for a bill at a brothel, he is forced to remain there to work off his debt. However he finds his wit and resourcefulness enable him to turn this situation to his advantage, as he interacts with a whole range of characters, from rivaling courtesans to political activists.

Co-scripted by Shhei Imamura (Vengeance Is Mine), it sharply and comically demonstrates the constants of human nature just as it delineates the tumultuous political times (the 1860s, leading up to the Meiji Restoration) in which they lived.

Special Features:
  • Gorgeous new Nikkatsu restoration of the film in its original aspect ratio, presented in 1080p HD on the Blu-ray
  • New and improved English subtitles
  • A booklet including Shhei Imamura's tribute to Yuzo Kawashima, and more
  • More extras to be announced closer to release date

Also known as "Sun in the Last Days of the Shogunate". If this follows the same pattern as "Gate of Hell," I hope that means a Criterion edition follows suit!

could be,but why hope for a criterion edition when eureka delivers top notch transfers,in fact...some outclass the criterion...by a verry small margin,and mostly come with slightly more extra's.
dont get me wrong...i love the work criterion does and i have loads of the releases,togheter with MOC and Kino.
i mostly wait for the reviews and pick the best of them,i did the same with Metropolis and Die Nibelungen wich are better (small margin again)on the MOC release

Peterraes: It's mostly because I'd like to support Criterion when I can and not double-dip if possible. There's a couple of Eureka titles that don't look like they're ever going to come out here, so I may pick them up, but for the most part I like to see if Criterion offers them as well.
