2017. An old man being treated in a hospital is always clinging to what appears to be a screenplay for a film. When a young nurse, Amane, asks him, "What's it about?" he bashfully begins to tell the story. "It's a magical tale of a young man..." 1960. Makino Kenji is an Assistant Director at a film studio. He dreams of one day becoming a director, but all he does now is run errands. Kenji's outlet and secret pleasure is watching his favorite old romantic movie at the theater -- an old black and white treasure that only showed for a brief period before being cancelled.
The film was part of the line-up at the Toronto Japanese Film Festival in Toronto in 2018. See more »
The story is simple and predictable but beautifully told until the end.
Although this kind of weird love is already happened, for example a man who married his sex doll.
Not a good example. If all people really fall in love to something unreal, human will stop reproducing. We will surely soon be extinct.
