Heartfelt Movie that Sings the Song of the Unheroic Hero

A Story of Yonosuke (160 min, 2012)

Directed by Shuichi Okita

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 annoying and charming everyone in equal measure, but his good nature brings him romance and a loyal group of friends.

The next 20 years finds him following the winding road of contemporary Japanese history, filled with twists and turns.

In Japanese with English subtitles
