Eureka Entertainment Announces Japanese Classic, BAKUMATSU TAIYÔ-DEN For June 12 U.K. Release

Eureka Entertainment's Masters Of Cinema rollout continues on June 12 with the U.K. release of Kawashima Yuzo's 1957 comedy classic, Bakumatsu Taiyô-Den (A Sun-Tribe Myth from the Bakumatsu Era). Pre-orders are now available until then while the new trailer has since been made available with a look at the official box art for its Dual Format Blu-Ray release.
Voted one of the top five Japanese films ever made in a critic's poll by Japan's leading cinema publication Kinema Junpô, yet barely known in the West, Yûzô Kawashima's richly funny multi-levelled portrait of Japanese society Bakumatsu taiyô-den [A Sun-Tribe Myth from the Bakumatsu Era] is a glorious rediscovery. 
Co-scripted by Shôhei Imamura (Vengeance Is Mine), it sharply and comically demonstrates the constants of human nature just as it delineates the tumultuous political times (the 1860s, leading up to the Meiji Restoration) in which they lived.
Check out the trailer now!
