Unpopular magician, Haruo travels through a time warp 40 years ago. There, he meets his parents when young. Haruo becomes popular there and forms d duo with his father. Later, his mother's pregnancy is revealed and Haruo rethinks myself and confronts his own secret of his birth.
Ohizumi you plays Haruo and Gekidan Hitori plays Haruo's father. They are Japanese comedians so comical parts of this movie are very funny. I think casting is good. Though story is common time slip SF, main casts' nice performance and comical story development made this film be in union and unique, I think. Story is concrete and simple so it is easy to understand, which is also attractive.
I like Ohizum you so I savored his act. There are funny scenes but, moving scenes appear at good timing. This film told an importance of family or family love. I enjoy this movie!
