The only person to talk to him honestly about his acting is Otoku, the wet-nurse of his adoptive father's child.She is fired by the family, and Kikunosuke is forbidden to see her, because of the gossip a relationship with a servant would cause.Kikunosuke falls in love with Otoku, and leaves home to try to make a living on his own merits outside Tokyo.He is eventually joined by Otoku, who encourages him to become a famous actor to regain the recognition of his family.I've read some very exciting comments about this picture and in the middle of the movie I realized how I'm disappointed a bit.
