Sukiyaki Western Django is a Spaghetti Western by Takashi Miike starring almost entirely Japanese people, with almost exclusively English dialogue. There are two exceptions to both: one of each of them is Quentin Tarantino, who opens the film in a flashback where he tells the age-old tale about a war, a recurrence of which he takes part in much later in his life. He then throws an egg in the air, shoots 3 people whose blood splatters the backdrop, and then extends one hand to catch the egg to an accompanying slide whistle. It's that kind of movie.

The film takes its plot from the Spaghetti Western film genre - Django, among others, hence the name, although significant plot elements come from Yojimbo and its de facto remake A Fistful of Dollars: sukiyaki is a hot pot or "steamboat" dish often used as a generic label of "Japaneseness".
