Mahoro Ekimae Tada Benriken - Tatsushi Omori (2011)
Tatsushu Omori, the man who shocked audiences with his film "The Whispering of the Gods", has seemingly mellowed with his upcoming film "Mahoro Ekimae Tada Benriken". Eita and Ryuhei Matsuda star as a pair of benriya, or odd job men. Their random interactions with a series of clients (a prostitute, student, etc.) forms the backbone of the film. "Mahoro Ekimae Tada Benriken" is scheduled for release in Japan on April 23.
