A formidable force at Shochiku in its early years, Shimizu Hiroshi’s charm lies in his innovative directorial flourishes and notable, spontaneous style. Beginning with two blind masseurs travelling to ply their trade at hot springs, the comedy quietly tilts into a light romance-cum-detective story when one of them is smitten by an elusive beauty from Tokyo.
