Synopsis:

A poverty-stricken samurai named Hanshiro Tsugumo arrives at the manor of a feudal lord under the pretense of wanting to find a suitable place to commit seppuku.

First Teaser Trailer for Katsuhito Ishii’s SMUGGLER

The Taste of Tea und Funky Forest director Katsuhito Ishii takes on Shohei Manabe’s 2000 manga SMUGGLER:

Synopsis:

A failed actor named Ryosuke (Satoshi Tsumabuki) takes a part-time job at a pachinko parlor. After racking up a huge debt, he’s forced to take a smuggling job from a yakuza company chief (Yasuko Matsuyuki) who offers him 50,000 yen per successful delivery.
Unfortunately for Ryosuke, the reason for this big payout is that his new job actually entails disposing of corpses in the middle an escalating gang war, and making even the slightest mistake could prove deadly.
