A Story of Yonosuke
North American Premiere
Co-presented with the New York Asian Film Festival
Yonosuke arrives at university in the late 1980s, a time when Japan is booming and the economy is raining cash. Hopelessly naive, and hopelessly self-confident, he comes to the big city and annoys everyone. But slowly he finds a group of friends and then the movie jumps forward 20 years and then… to tell any more would ruin the surprise, but this is a heartfelt movie that sings the song of the unheroic hero.
Japan, 2012, 160 min. BD, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Shuichi Okita. With Kengo Kora, Yuriko Yoshitaka, Sosuke Ikematsu, Ayumi Ito, Gou Ayano.
