Japan’s most beloved comedy film series celebrates its 50th anniversary with its 50th film. At the 7th annual memorial service for his wife, novelist and father Mitsuo struggles with the next steps in his life. Conversation turns to lively reminiscences of the past, especially about their incorrigible uncle, Tora-san and his many unrequited loves (as documented in the first 49 films). Two women enter Mitsuo’s life: one a thoughtful coworker, the other his long-lost first love Izumi. Can Tora-san’s experiences guide Mitsuo to the right decision? Lovingly blending nostalgic scenes for the original series with new footage featuring original cast members master director Yamada creates a moving and wistful tale of family, love and memory.
