    Ryûzô to 7 nin no kobun tachi (Ryuzo And The Seven Henchmen)



    What has Takeshi Kitano been up to? More than two years after the release of his yakuza sequel Outrage Beyond, the Japanese director recently spoke out about the current state of the Japanese film industry, during a talk session at the 27th Tokyo International Film Festival (Oct 23-31, 2014) — where Kitano received the “Samurai Award,” which “commend achievements of filmmaker who continues to create groundbreaking films that carve out a path to a new era.” Irony?

    He openly mentioned many issues of the local industry (“the production companies have relationships with cinemas,” “Out of all the Academy Award nominations, I don’t think any have been nominated that are not from these companies” — read more), reflecting some of his own difficulties, and, his growing lack of interest in (mainstream) cinema.

    It’s of no surprise, since the Outrage films were clearly commercial movies supposed to help funding more personal projects. Remember, Kitano was returning to the gangster world after his strange self-introspective trilogy, which flopped.

    At some point during the talk, Kitano said, “I’m done shooting, but I’ve been told to keep quiet.”

    Yet, few days later, Kitano was unveiling an unexpected new project called

    “Ryuzo And The Seven Henchmen”.

    The story? Seven retired yakuza living as old men are answering the call of their former boss, Ryuzo, who has been the victim of a phishing fraud. The gang is back together to teach some lessons. Starring many cult Japanese actors such as Tatsuya Fuji (Stray Cat film series), Ken Yoshizawa (Ecstasy of the Angels), Masaomi Kondo (The Last Samurai)…

    It seems to be Kitano’s way to mix the world of gangsters — to reach a wider audience — with some more personal subjects — the old age, seeking a new lease of life, the cold/dark comedy. Wait & see.

    The film will be released in Japanese theaters on April 25, 2015.

    Indeed. Wobei ich Outrage 2 immer noch ausstehen habe...
    But from that moment on, Hermione Granger became their friend.
