The fifth film directed by Takeshi Kitano, the mentor to Asakusa Kid, this piece is of a greatly different tone from his first four debut films, from Violent Cop through Sonatine. Asao is constantly dreaming of becoming a ladies’ man. Yet all his attempts – bank raid, cash transport car robbery, acting career and hidden treasure hunt – not only fail miserably, but get him into deeper trouble…

The fifteenth film of the Tora-san series. Ruriko Asaoka guest-stars as Lily Matsuoka, everyone’s idol and singer.

The three travel together for some time, but end up going their separate ways after a small argument. Torajiro returns to Shibamata in foul spirits, where Lily comes to visit him…
