    • Synopsis
    • "I'm fed up and I want to quit but I've been doing this for 35 goddamn years and can't think what the hell else to do..." Japan's Ministry of Culture designates certain august artistic personages with the title "Official National Living Treasure". Takada Wataru, veteran folk-singer, raconteur, poet and alcoholic is not one of these. Indeed, he's widely known by those who love him as "Unofficial National Living Treasure". This documentary is a glimpse into the life and work of this truly unique individual who manages to be at once profound, charming, pitiful and proud.
