YesAsia Editorial Description

From Kudo Kankuro, writer of Go and Ping Pong, comes the surreal samurai flick Yaji & Kita: The Midnight Pilgrims (a.k.a. Mayonaka no Yaji-san Kita-san). Kudo makes his directorial debut with this film adaptation of a manga by Shiriagai Kotobuki, which itself was based on Jippensha Ikku's classic novel Tokkaidochu Hizakurige. But rather than create a slavish adaptation, Kudo has chosen to re-imagine the world according to his own out-there sensibilities!

The film has all the markings of a period drama, but sports enough anachronisms and non sequiturs to make his audience's collective head spin. The film centers on the gay couple of Yajirobe (Tokio frontman Nagase Tomoya) and Kitachachi (Nakamura Shichinosuke) as they live their lives in Edo. But the two men have their fair share of problems: Kitachachi is an unemployed, drug-addicted actor, while Yaji suffers from nightmares that have pushed him to the brink of sanity. On a whim, the two head off to the Ise Shrine in the hopes of curing what ails them. But since this is an anything goes comedy, the not-so-happy couple don't go by horseback, but instead hop on a modern-day motorcycle!

Things get even stranger when they reach the Inn of Laughs where they meet a stoic gatekeeper (Takeuchi Riie) who demands they make him laugh in order to pass. Making plenty of allies and enemies on their journey, the two eventually reach the Inn of Songs and then finally, the Inn of the King, where they happen to encounter, of all people, King Arthur of Camelot! Needless to say, the deliriously paced Yaji & Kita is one strange, wild ride not to be missed!

This customer review refers to Mayonaka no Yaji San Kita San (DVD) (DTS Special Edition) (First Presse Edition) (English Subtitled) (Japan Version)
A new style movie Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
It's really a very special movie! There are mobile, high school girls etc running in the movie, the point is, the background is in the period of Edo(the ancient Japan)!!! The story itself is quite interesting and laughing. The two guys are lovers, and they overcame many problems, and meet different people. There are sad feelings mixed with the laughing scenes. A contradictory story full of meaning truth. Like this movie very very much!
