Nakadai Tatsuya, one of Japan’s greatest actors, will be visiting Yale University for Q&As following two films and other workshops to be announced.
In Age of Assassins, we see Nakadai in true form as an unassuming guy caught up in a madcap world of spies, diamond smuggling, femme fatales, and, you guessed it, assassins. An often overlooked satire of spy movies, this film demonstrates Nakadai’s extensive range and charm, no matter what the genre.
Age of Assassins (Satsujin kyōjidai 殺人狂時代, 1967)
Directed by Okamoto Kihachi
Runtime 99 minutes with Q&A to follow
