Director: Minoru Kawasaki
Japan | 2005 | 35mm | 85 Min. | OmeU


Tamura, the upright-walking koala bear, is an average office worker in Japan. He is successful in his business, though he refuses to play office politics. His aim in life his to marry his girlfriend Yoko, raise a child and carry on working with an ordinary company until retirement.

However, his dreams are extinguished when his girlfriend is found dead and Tamura becomes the prime suspect. Trying to prove his innocence he realizes that he can't recall the past events. Not even the bartender (the frog) at his favorite spot is really helpful in regaining the lost memory. But, what does his boss, the rabbit, know about Tamura? There seems to be a dreadful two hundred year old secret behind the EXECUTIVE KOALA!


After CALAMARI WRESTLER and KABUTO-O BEETLE Minoru Kawasaki is back with a hilarious film about people in animal suits.
