YesAsia Editorial Description

Screened at the 2013 Tokyo Film Festival, Tsuta Tetsuichiro's (Island of Dreams) remarkable sophomore feature The Tale of Iya, shot in the beautiful Iya Valley of Tokushima, explores the juxtaposition of urban and rural and a disappearing way of life. Tired of the city life, Tokyo transplant Kudo (Ohnishi Shima) arrives in Iya one summer hoping to begin anew, but discovers things aren't as peaceful as he expected. In this rural town, he meets an elderly grandfather (Tanaka Min) and his granddaughter Haruna (Takeda Rina), who live off nature in the mountains. Inspired by their simple lives of self-sustenance, Kudo finds renewed purpose working the land. Meanwhile, as Haruna approaches the end of high school, she must choose between staying put or leaving for the big city.

ある日、山から少女が降りてきた。/35mmフィルムで綴る、美しき故郷のものがたり。/四季折々の表情を見せる、日本最後の秘境、徳島県・祖谷を舞台に足かけ3年に撮影。美しくも厳しい大地に根をおろし、時代に翻弄されながらも逞しく生きる人々の営みを真摯に見つめ、現代社会が見失って久しい“本当の豊かさ”を見出そうとする意欲作。主人公の武田梨奈は忍び寄る時代の変化や将来の不安に揺れ動く心の機微を巧みに表現。演技派女優としての新境地を披露する。その他に、映画「たそがれ清兵衛」で日本アカデミー賞に輝いた田中泯や、「キャタピラー」「さよなら渓谷」など、全身全霊の演技で映画界を揺るがしてきた大西信満。監督の蔦哲一朗が完全35mmフィルムでの撮影を敢行。100年後、1000年後まで残る本物を制作しようと志高く撮影に挑み、世界の映画に引けを取らない映像美を実現した。
