The Good Wife of Tokyo
A film by Claire Hunt and Kim Longinotto
England, 1992, 52 minutes, Color, 16mm/DVD, Subtitled
Order No. W99219
“Forget those demure ladies with fragrant fans and meet the new breed of Japanese women!” — Amanda Casson, London Film Festival. Kazuko Hohki goes back to Tokyo with her band, the ‘Frank Chickens’, after living in England for 15 years. This wry and delightful film records her re-experiencing of Japan after a long absence, examining traditional attitudes to women and those of Kazuko’s friends who are trying to live differently. “This is a remarkable film which will appeal to general audiences as well as educators teaching about women, the family and/or religion in contemporary Japan. It deserves to be widely shown.” — Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership Center for Educational Media.


    “Thoroughly captivating, amusing.”
