Storyline

The Tokyo Olympics are about to open, and Rynosuke Chagawa is excited to receive a new TV set to watch the upcoming events. His wife Hiromi is pregnant and he has built a second level on his shop to provide his adopted son Junnosuke with a private space to study for entrance to Tokyo University to set up a career with a major company. He dreams of sparing Junnosuke the struggles that he has faced as a writer. The family continues to rely upon Hiromi's income from her bar. Meanwhile a rival story, The Virus, by a new writer has appeared in the periodical that has been publishing his stories "Boy's Adventure Book" and he fears the new competition. Norifumi Suzuki also receives a new TV, but more of a deluxe model. Mutsuko Hoshino (Roku) is still the principal mechanic in the Suzuki family's auto repair shop, but she dresses up some mornings to go to a nearby street with the hope of a "chance" meeting with Dr. Kikuchi, who earlier treated a burn on her arm. High school student Ippei ... Written by Brian Greenhalgh

Artificial in many ways
9 August 2012 | by ebiros2See all my reviews

The year is the year of Tokyo Olympic. Japan is celebrating the opening of the bullet train line. Roku-chan finds the love of her life, and Hiromi becomes pregnant. There's new development for the Suzuki family, and the country of Japan.

I love Ryohei Saigan's comic, and this is the big screen version of his comic by the same title.

But I'm not a big fan of this series because the behavior of the people are not all that high caliber. True, it depicts how people act in normal life, but it lacks class of say like the "Tokyo Story".

I'm not quite sure if this movie succeeded in capturing Saigan's style. Saigan's characters has certain pity to them that makes you want to cry, but characters in this movie are just acting out the role.

Nostalgia is artificial too. It wasn't quite like that back then. The only character that I liked was Tomoe. Hiroko Yakushimaru puts good punctuation to a rather bland story.

Entrance exam to Tokyo University, hardship of a poor writer, young people coming out to Tokyo to work. All are part of the microcosm of '60s Japan, but something isn't authentic about this story. It's the first time I felt like watching CG filled movie that doesn't have that much CG, and I couldn't get into it.
