Kirin: “The North Wind and the Sun”
Director Shinsuke Jitsumori aims straight at the mysterious tastes of the domestic Japanese market with this super-campy retelling of Aesop’s fable “The North Wind and the Sun” for Kirin thru Dentsu.
Where the original tale finds the North Wind and the Sun locked in combat to make a traveler remove his cloak, this less-than-PC version revises the challenge to who can make two sunbathers take off their bathing suits.
