Masayuki Suo's "first" film is about a set of guys who decide to become Buddhist monks at a temple. First is a rock star who must study for 1 year, being the oldest son of a Buddhist monk. Another is his younger brother, who goes because he wants to. A third is a guy who is about to marry a Buddhist monk's daughter and must go to the temple, and last a fatso that is pushed by his mother for discipline. And at the temple, the 4 mens' lives are going to change, for better or worse...

Suo's first (not counting the pink stuff) is hilarious, touching, simplistic, yet something of a minor classic, and working with actors and staff he would also later be attached to in his other films. Just makes you wish he would make more films on a faster pace...
