A strange and sly dig at Japanese xenophobia. A dour family of four learns the obligations and consequences of "Hospitalite" when they take in a mysterious man as their live-in worker. This bizarre black comedy with allegorical overtones about Japanese xenophobia is a variation on the "house intruder" motif, with precedents as diverse as Yoshimitsu Morita's "Family Game" and Max Frisch's play "The Fire Raisers." Director-screenwriter Koji Fukada continually springs surprises on the audience as characters and subplots multiply like amorous rabbits.

Mikio Kobayashi lives quietly with his wife, daughter, and divorced sister in downtown Tokyo, where xenophobic neighbors insist they attend community watch meetings, and the only recent excitement is the disappearance of a pet parrot. One day Kagawa appears, claiming to be the son of a financier who once helped Kobayashi's company. Kagawa soon ingratiates himself as a live-in employee and proceeds to comically turn the Kobayashi's monotonous life upside down with his odd behavior, unexpected visitors, and bizarre schemes.
