Miss Hokusai Movie
The location: Edo, now called Tokyo.Among the greatest populated towns in the world, teeming with peasants, samurai, townsmen, merchants, nobles, artists, courtesans, and possibly even supernatural matters.An much accomplished artist of the period and today in his mid-fifties, Tetsuzo can boast customers from all around Japan, and tirelessly functions at the garbage-loaded turmoil of his house-atelier. He spends his days producing astounding pieces of artwork, from a giant-size Bodhidharma depicted onto a 180 square foot meter-wide sheet of newspaper, into a set of sparrows painted onto a very small rice grain. Short-tempered, entirely sarcastic, without a enthusiasm for interest or money, he’d charge a fortune for virtually any occupation he isn’t interested in.Third of all Tetsuzo’s four brothers and born from his second union, outspoken 23-year-old O-Ei has inherited her father’s talent and stubbornness, and quite often she’d paint rather than him, even although uncredited. Her artwork is so strong that sometimes contributes to trouble. “We are dad and daughter; using 2 brushes and four chopsticks, I figure we can always handle, in a way or another.”Decades later, Europe will detect the astounding talent of Tetsuzo. He had been to become best known by a few of his most titles: Katsushika Hokusai. However, not many now are aware of the girl who assisted him his life, and heavily contributed to his own artwork while staying uncredited. Here is the untold story of O-Ei, Master Hokusai’s daughter: a playful portrayal of a teenaged girl overshadowed by her mythical dad, Suffering through the shifting seasons.
