Tokyo Filmex has annnounced their line-up. Japanese films include a  
retrospective of the late great Okamoto Kihachi (all films subtitled,  
amazingly enough) and new works by Kobayashi Masahiro (in  
competition) and Kurosawa Kiyoshi.

Blurbs and propaganda follow.

form an ensemble cast whose performances are all spectacular.
