When Yumiko Tsuyama, a potter by profession, comes inquiring about a room for rent in an old mansion overlooking Osaka, she finds a bizarre collection of characters already living there. The unlikely leader of this menagerie is Yoda Goro, who speaks four languages fluently, is an expert at cabbage rolls, and has written how-to books encompassing every aspect of human existence. This film is a masterpiece of satire and light comedy rotating a story around an expert survivor who can never quite find the privacy or isolation he desires.
