[ Story ]

This episodic film is patterned on the old picaresque comic novels so popular in eighteenth century Edo. A group of ne'er-do-wells live happily in the slums of what is now Tokyo and have a number of adventures: they get drunk and go whoring, revenge themselves on cruel landlords, animate the corpse of a money-lender in order to frighten people. Then they assist at the marriage of a lovely girl and almost kill themselves gambling to provide her with a dowry.

【Quoted from Unijapan Film Quarterly 1966 9.3】
