Take (100 Yen Love) directs this caper comedy about an underdog antiques appraiser who, after being tricked by a convincing forgery (and not for the first time), teams up with the forgers to make an exceptionally ambitious forgery himself: the supposed last teacup of Sen No Rikyu, one of the most influential figures in the history of the Japanese tea ceremony.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
