YesAsia Editorial Description

Acclaimed actor Odagiri Joe makes his feature-length directorial debut with the loony road movie Sakura no Hito Tachi (a.k.a. Looking For Cherry Blossoms). Odagiri, who financed the project himself, brings his quirky, idiosyncratic style to every frame as he handled the screenplay, cinematography, editing, music, and art design, in addition to directing and appearing in the film. Offering everything from animation to nudity in its one-hour length, this small absurdist comedy about three men on the road aims to confound with Mad Hatter humor and nonsensical turns of the screw. An off-the-wall trip for both the protagonists and the audience, Sakura no Hito Tachi hits the road with the ragtag cast of comedian Komoto Junichi (who happens to be Odagiri's elementary school classmate), Kawahara Sabu, Mitani Noboru, and Yamada Hiroshi.

Tsuyoshi (Komoto Junichi) visits his lonely grandfather at the hospital, and discovers that everyday the old man receives a mysterious postcard with a picture of a cherry blossom tree. When Tsuyoshi meets a taxi driver (Kawahara Sabu) who claims he knows the location of the postcard's tree, they head out on the open road together to find those cherry blossoms. Along the way, they pick up another traveler who's just as wacky.

This edition comes with video commentary, making of, premiere, and interviews.
