The commercial debut of Morita Yoshimitsu (famous for Family Game), Something Like It is a quirky film depicting a strange love triangle between a fledgling young performer of rakugo (Japanese traditional comic storytelling) in training, Shintoto, a sex worker he meets as a guest, and a high school girl who belongs to a rakugo club. Something Like It is also considered one of the best films depicting the world of “rakugo,” Japan’s traditional form of comic storytelling. This film is being shown as a pre-event for Verbal Arts of Japan, a live event on March 30 featuring rakugo performers.
