Movie Info

This expansive drama follows Kariya (Kazuo Kitamura), an engineer from Tokyo, as he deals with the natives of a remote island. The inbred and highly eccentric Futori family is shunned by most of the other islanders, but Kariya must work with the strange clan in order to construct a well that will supply water to the sugar mill. As Kariya goes about his job, he encounters various Futoris, including the mystically inclined Uma (Yasuko Matsui) and her disgraced brother, Nekichi (Rentarô Mikuni).

  • a remarkable achievement - an unruly anthropological oddity full of primitive longings, exploitative politics, and divine mysteries.

Audience Reviews for The Profound Desire of the Gods

    It could be a lot shorter but neverless its still a interesting story with lots to enjoy,some fasinating performances on show keep it ticking along, and the story itself about a family with issues inside the family and to others on the island comes off well.
