The Hyderabad Film Club is screening an Japanese Film, The Eel (Unagi), on 12th February, at the Sarathi Studios in Ameerpet. The film is directed By Shohei Imamura, and has Koji Yakusho, Misa Shimizu, Mitsuko Baisho, Fujio Tsuneta and Akira Emoto playing the central characters.

Winner of the Palme d'Or at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, this masterpiece from Shohei Imamura is a bold, frequently offbeat exploration of crime and punishment, guilt and redemption, and the elusive possibility of salvation through love.

In a jealous rage, Takuro Yamshita brutally murders his beautiful wife after catching her making love to another man. Without hesitating, he delicately covers her lifeless body and turns himself in to the local authorities.

After an 8-year prison sentence, he chooses to start a new life as a barber in a small town offering perfect isolation from his fears. The agonizing pain of his wife's infidelity leaves him unforgiving and without remorse. For years now, his only solace has been an eel he kept as a pet in prison and, now, in a small tank at the barber shop.

As a favor to the town's priest, Takuro reluctantly agrees to help a young woman with a troubled past by offering her a job as his assistant. Beautiful, sincere and uncompromisingly dedicated, it would appear that Keiko is just what Takuro needs in his life. However, when he least expects it, Keiko's past collides with that of Takuro. And if he is not careful, it will come back to haunt him forever.

Entry is only for the members of HFC. Please contact Bh S S Prakash Reddy of the Hyderabad Film Club at 2373-0841/93910-20243 for further details.
