The Man Who Stole the Sun / Taiyo wo Nusunda Otoko / 太陽を盗んだ男
Starring: Kenji Sawada, Bunta Sugawara
Finally! After years of searching for this film, NB has found it... and online with English subtitles, to boot! (Link at the end)
Many years ago, Narry saw the very image you are seeing now to your left on the wall of his beloved kind-of brother-in-law, and the image has stuck in his mind ever since. It's so crazy! What's happening in that image? Can you guess what it's about? Even the title of the film doesn't give much away.
And I'm not going to tell you much either. Cos this is a special film where the strength of the story (by American writer Leonard Schrader) is matched by directorial prowess, and, in fact, surpassed by an inspired cast.
A big shout out to rarefilmm.com for uploading this gem.
