Q&A with director Shinobu Yaguchi and star Ayaka Miyoshi

When an entry level Tokyo salarywoman with executive level aspirations wakes up from hypnosis performed by a shady carnival magician (played by Akira Takarada, of Godzilla fame), she suddenly can’t help but break into song and dance whenever she hears music. Desperate to break the spell before an important meeting, she chases the evasive hypnotist across the country, singing and dancing herself into and out of trouble along the way. With his signature light touch and knack for ensemble comedy, director Shinobu Yaguchi (Swing Girls) delivers a winning office comedy-road trip-musical led by Ayaka Miyoshi’s irresistible breakout performance.

2019. 103 min. Directed by Shinobu Yaguchi. With Ayaka Miyoshi, Akira Takarada, Yu Yashiro, Takahiro Miura.
