Takuya is 18, with tousled hair and an athletic look. Driven by his father and sponsors, he leaves his hometown in Hokkaido to go to Tokyo and joins a sumo stable. There, he will share everything with the 10 other wrestlers: day-to-day life, training, social life and tournaments. The first 9 months of Takuya's initiation, telling about the dreams and disenchantment of a teenager who is discovering the reality of the traditional world of sumo.Written by
Last year, I attended Nagoya Sumo Competition. It was an incredible moment. I've never thought I would like watching big babies fighting on the stage. For one week, Nagoya was full of those half-gods. I loved it. I got crazy for non-Japanese sumoroti. Immediately, I wanted to know more about the very secret sumo sphere. "Tu seras sumo" gave it to me.
"Tu seras sumo" is more of a documentary than a movie. It takes you to the guts though. I've lived this experience with the young Takuya, at this so Japanese pace, with the savor of Tokyo and Nagoya on my tongue. A classical to watch, for the ones who wants to taste Japan authenticity.
