2009, 112 min., 35mm., color, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Yoshihiro Nakamura. With Atsushi Ito, Kengo Takara, Mikako Tabe and Nao Omori.
It’s 2012, and a colossal meteor is set to smash into earth within hours, causing tidal waves that will destroy humanity. People have fled Tokyo except for two music geeks in a record shop, who are listening to a song by an underground Japanese punk band from 1975. What follows is the outrageous story of the song’s origin and how it caused a chain of events that will eventually save the world. Fish Story had its North American premiere at Japan Society’s 2009 JAPAN CUTS—The New York Festival of Contemporary Japanese Cinema, co-presented with the New York Asian Film Festival.
