Spotlight on JapanKan Eguchi
The Fable (played by Junichi Okada, SEKIGAHARA, SAMURAI’S PROMISE) is a mysterious ruthless assassin. No one knows anything about him except for his reputation as the deadliest man in Japan. But after a hit on a major crime boss, The Fable’s handler fears his cover may be blown. He sends him to Osaka with strict instructions to blend in and lead a ‘regular’ life for one year. No killing allowed.
But can this born assassin change his ways? And will he survive the day-to-day life of a working joe? And furthermore, as he tries to fit in (with often hilarious results), what will happen when the local gangs start to embroil him in their gangland affairs? Part comedy, part action thriller, THE FABLE from director Kan Eguchi, is one of the most fun, unique, and entertaining films of the year.
