We Make Antiques
Dubious antique dealer Norio finds a priceless tea bowl which once belonged to the famous 16th century tea master Sen no Rikyo among the musty contents of a rich family’s storehouse. He deceives the homeowner Sasuke to get it for next to nothing. In fact Sasuke is merely the house-sitter and made the tea cup himself.
When Norio learns Sasuke was once a gifted potter whose career was derailed by a famous TV antiques appraiser – the same man who damaged Norio’s own reputation – they decide to settle the score and scam the appraiser.
Their scheme is the gamble of a lifetime involving their wives, children and life savings. What could possibly go wrong…?
Masaharu Take’s hit caper-comedy offers much to enjoy for both those who like to laugh as well as Japanese pottery aficionados.
