Synopsis

He was slick. He was smooth. He was debonair. Captain Kuhio (Masato Sakai) is a self-proclaimed U.S. pilot who has been around the world as a jet fighter pilot. He also claims to be a descendant of the Kamehameha Dynasty and his mother is a cousin of Queen Elizabeth’s younger sister’s husband. With these elaborate lies and clever disguises, the charming man wooed several women and swindled an estimated 100 million yen from them. Can a love based on deception endure? “The Wonderful World of Captain Kuhio” is a 2009 Japanese film directed by Daihachi Yoshida. It is based on Kazumasa Yoshida’s 2006 biographical novel, Kekkon Sagishi Kuhio Taisa (Marriage Swindler: Captain Kuhio), which is based on a true story. Masato Sakai won Best Actor and Sakura Ando won Best Supporting Actress for their roles in this film at the 31st Yokohama Film Festival.
