Yosuke FUJITA 藤田容介
Fuku-chan Of Fukufuku Flats
Best Of Nippon Connection ²
Fuku-chan is generous, light-hearted and a little chubby. When a woman from his past returns, his old fear of women is finally put to the test. Yosuke FUJITA’s comedy is just as pleasing, daring, bittersweet and absurd as his NIPPON CINEMA AWARD winning debut FINE, TOTALLY FINE.
