Biography
 
  Xi Nakai Kiichi is one of Japan's top stars, known for his roles in a wide range of films, from period dramas to modern day comedies. His screen presence - marked by his tall and agile figure, with a personality that mixes equal parts playfulness and a gracious sense of honor - have led some film world observers to dub him the "Chow Yun-Fat of Japan." He has collaborated with some of the legendary directors of the Japanese cinema. He has worked several times with director Kon Ichikawa ("Tokyo Olympiad", "The Makioka Sisters", "Dodesukaden"), in the films "47 Ronin", "Film Actress", and also "The Burmese Harp", the director's 1985 remake of his own 1956 classic. He also appeared in the 1999 film "Owl's Castle", from director Masahiro Shinoda ("Double Suicide", "MacArthur's Children").
