Top 15 Fathers on Film
Gou-ichi Takata, 'Riding Alone for Thousands of Miles'
Ken Takakura plays a Japanese father who shows his love for his estranged son by completing the son's final project, a filmed version of a Chinese opera, even though he knows nothing about filming, China, or opera. We never find out why Gou-ichi's dying son refuses even to see his father. Gou-ichi himself may not know. But he finds out that his son had promised to return to China to make a movie about an opera called "Riding Alone for Thousands of Miles." Gou-ichi's encounters with an inept interpreter, the opera star (who must be released from prison so that he can perform), and a little boy from a remote village help to further illuminate the many facets of fatherhood.
