Flashback #30: “Hitoshi Matsumoto”


It is a truth commonly acknowledged that Locarno has always had a special relationship with Orient cinema. In 2011, nevertheless, the surprise comes from a Japanese name that – until that moment – very few people knew. It is a night of grace and Hitoshi Matsumoto overwhelms the Piazza Grande audience with his humour-samurai. And his greeting in Italian to have “un'ottima proiezione” becomes a catchphrase which will be repeated all over the 64° edition.
