"Reality" erodes reality

March 11, 2011 ── That day, we thought we were finally here. While watching the burning Kesennuma, I was scared by the news of the meltdown of the nuclear power plant. And I thought it would change if I survived. If it doesn't change, we can't face the dead. Nine years have passed since then, and we are living with the feelings of that day in the corner of our heads, as if we had dreamed of it. Haruki, the main character, is one of us. Haruki goes to Yokosuka after getting a mysterious information that her ex-girlfriend who thought she died in the disaster might be alive. That trip was a trip that reminded me of that day's feelings ──​


Ryuju Kobayashi, who attracted attention for his role as Haruki in "Guilty of Romance," "Broken Pieces," and "Run, at a speed that can't keep up with despair," was invited as a co-star. , Yota Kawase, who is widely active in TV dramas such as "One Cut of the Dead", Setsuko Karasuma in the friendship appearance, and Kazuaki Nagaya of "One Cut of the Dead", which made the movie world exciting last year. The director and screenwriter is Shinichi Otsuka, who will make his feature-length debut as a theatrical release. I usually worked at a ramen shop and completed this work over 5 years.

Go meet the ghosts ...

Haruki and Chikako were lovers who were about to get married, but suddenly when Chikako's father who lives in Fukushima collapsed, she needed help with her only daughter. Haruki and Chikako decide to part with no choice. It was the result of Haruki's choice of work, weighing his life with Chikako and his work in Tokyo.


── After that, the Great East Japan Earthquake struck, and nine years have passed.


Haruki was informed by an acquaintance that Chikako, who was thought to have died in the disaster, "may be alive", and headed to Yokosuka, where Chikako was present, with half-belief.

Shigehiko Hasumi (Film critic)

This new director's first work is a very ambitious work, but it is hard to say that it is an excellent work in that it is spoken by dialogue rather than a chain of shots. However, the fact that everything is done in 90 minutes deserves high praise.

Onodera system (critic)

 The relentless reality of destroying everyday life is like an illusion, and at the same time, the lost everyday life is also thought to be an illusion. A work that makes you feel the desire to grab something that is certain in such an unreliable world.


Risaku Kiridoshi (critic)

 There is no doubt that it is a movie that raises the issue and can be said to be magnificent.

Sakichi Sato (Screenwriter)

It was a strange touch. It takes a great deal of courage and sense to sublimate as entertainment across genres while facing the subject head-on, but director Nobukazu Otsuka has cleared it brilliantly. I'm really looking forward to seeing how it will come next.


Yushun Orita (writing business)

Many suggestive settings and lines that can be read from this work that challenged "memory" from multiple perspectives ── <message> ── are now faced by each person who is facing various realities. I think you can receive each one. I strongly feel the significance and inevitability of being disclosed in this environment.

Yoshitaka Mori (Director)

It's a disgusting movie. Forget everything conveniently and try to live as comfortably as possible, ​ Let us face our own inertia.

​ Toshinao Sasaki (journalist)

A masterpiece in which the axis of memory and oblivion overlaps with another axis of parties and non-parties, and the thoughts of each character emerge strongly.
