A Taxing Woman
A Taxing Woman is a 1987 Japanese comedy film written and directed by Juzo Itami. It won numerous awards, including six major Japanese Academy awards. The title character of the film, played by Nobuko Miyamoto, is a tax investigator for the Japanese National Tax Agency who employs various techniques to catch tax evaders. The director reportedly was inspired to make the film after he entered a much higher tax bracket after his success with The Funeral. A sequel, A Taxing Woman 2, featuring some of the same characters but darker in tone, was released in 1988.
