百日紅〜Miss HOKUSAI〜

Best Of Nippon Connection   ² 

Edo, today known as Tokyo, in 1814: The artist Hokusai tirelessly works in his atelier to cover the demand for his famous paintings. However, few people are aware that some of these pieces of art are in fact the work of his daughter Oei. The visually stunning MISS HOKUSAI recounts episodes in the life of a young woman who was overshadowed by her world-famous father all of her life. Director Keiichi HARA mixes several genres, like coming of age and family drama, to tell the story of a free-spirited female artist.
