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.Written by
When a man is being pursued by a woman he stumbles upon a truly beautiful maiden straight out of a fantasy. The fantastical women is very thin, has nice hair, nice face, nice eyes and is kind to animals. He is being pursued by a woman who has short hair (but at least she too is slender) so she is not a looker and therefore he remains in love with his new discovery. The story takes a turn I will not reveal here.
This is different and not for those seeking happy endings.
