Japanese Film Review -- Juzo Itami's 'A Taxing Woman'
The movie "A Taxing Woman" ("Marusa No Onna"), which can be found on DVD, streaming video and sometimes on Turner Classic Movies (TCM), is rich in craft, humor and awareness of what Japan and its people are about. Itami reveals the Japanese way.
Itami followed "Tampopo" with "Marusa No Onna" ("A Taxing Woman") in 1987. It didn't do as well in this country, most likely because it lacks something of its predecessor's flavorful eccentricity.
It's a question of degrees, however, and small ones at that. "Marusa No Onna," which can be found on DVD, streaming video and sometimes on Turner Classic Movies (TCM), is rich in craft, humor and awareness of what Japan and its people are about.
Like "Tampopo," the movie (which Itami wrote as well as directed) centers on a woman, Itami's primary cinematic obsession. Ryoko Itakura (Nobuko Miyamoto) is a recent divorcee with a young son. She works as a tax investigator.
Actually, saying she "works" is like saying Babe Ruth "played" baseball. Ryoko is a tax star, a diligent and inspired unraveler of the most complicated scams. She's a focused workaholic who doesn't see anything wrong with the term.
Hideki Gondo (Tsutomu Yamazaki), a suspicious real estate developer with an eye for the ladies, is involved in a big fraud scheme. It's natural that his and Ryoko's lives would intersect. Once Ryoko sets her unblinking eyes on Gondo and his records, "Marusa No Onna" becomes a clever and revealing war of personalities.
Itami enlivens everything by letting an attraction develop between these dissimilar people. The maneuver may be predictable, but it captures the essence of any screwball satire that uses romance as a cornerstone for entertainment.
"Marusa No Onna" does feel overly long at times--some details of Japanese life, especially the dedication to tax evasion that rivals our own, don't intrigue as much as Itami would like--but it's hard to tire of Miyamoto and Yamazaki's performances. Their chemistry crosses all international borders.
