YesAsia Editorial Description

Based on the novel Nanimono by Asai Ryo, Someone gathers an all-star cast for an incisive drama about how the job-hunting process and social media test and reveal the inner depths of one's character. Satoh Takeru (Rurouni Kenshin), Suda Masaki (Death Note Light up the NEW world), Arimura Kasumi (Flying Colors), Nikaido Fumi (Wolf Girl and Black Prince) and Okada Masaki (The Top Secret: Murder in Mind) play five fresh grads of different personalities who are navigating the spirit-crushing competition of finding a job. Directed by Miura Daisuke (Love's Whirlpool), Someone deftly reads between the lines, using Twitter behavior, theater sketches and passive-aggressive interactions to build the underlying tension and turmoil of the protagonists.

Reticent observer Takuto (Satoh Takeru) sets aside his passion for theater and approaches the job-hunting process with serious precision. His roommate, bright and free-spirited Kamiya (Suda Masaki), begins his job search late with no goal in mind. Gentle and sincere Mizuki (Arimura Kasumi), Kamiya's ex-girlfriend, just returned from study abroad and seeks the job security of a large company. Mizuki's big-talking friend Rika (Nikaido Fumi) is determined to get a good job, while her patronizing boyfriend Miyamoto (Okada Masaki) puts down the job-seeking herd mentality. The five meet regularly at Rika's apartment and share their job-searching progress. They encourage each other nominally and craft public identities on Twitter, but each person is keeping their true thoughts to themselves.

This edition comes with a booklet and special features including previews, making-of, unreleased footage, event videos, promotion special and audio commentary.

To know you is to not know you
Playwright-turned-director Miura Daisuke draws from his theater background to effectively adapt Asai Ryo's 2012 Naoki Prize-winning novel Someone. The discomfiting drama uses a group of friends' deflating process of job hunting to not only capture the ambitions, insecurities and hypocrisies of young people competing for employment, but also to construct an astute study of social interactions and public identities in the age of social media.

Headlined by a top-drawer young ensemble cast that pretty much sells itself, the story revolves around five college seniors of different personalities and wants who are wading through the daunting process of job hunting. Leading protagonist Takuto (Satoh Takeru) is a meticulous sociology major who has given up theater to completely dedicate his time and effort to job hunting. His extroverted roommate Kamiya (Suda Masaki) is a free-spirited rocker with no concrete interests or plans, but he clicks with people easily. Sincere, soft-spoken Mizuki (Arimura Kasumi) – Takuto's crush and Kamiya's ex-girlfriend – seeks a stable job at a large company so she can provide for her mom. Loudly ambitious Rika (Nikaido Fumi) makes a big show of talking up her knowledge, credentials and job requirements. Rika's boyfriend Miyamoto (Okada Masaki), a freelance writer, disparages the meaningless rush of job hunting for job hunting's sake.

Frequently meeting up to share information and progress, the five form a close-ish circle of friends with an asterisk who are forthcoming to different degrees. Rika tends to dominate conversations while Takuto tends to hold his thoughts to himself, but both see through each other's passive-aggressive mannerisms. Though Takuto doesn't outwardly express interest in his friends' lives, he obsessively follows their Twitter updates and silently analyzes, extrapolates and judges those around him for their pretentious posts. The group's fragile friendships grow and strain amid the unspoken competition of trying to land a job before everyone else does. No one wants to be the last one left, and bitterness and desperation increasingly seep into interactions as some advance in the job-hunting process and others don't.

With the main character being a theater aficionado and amateur playwright, Miura Daisuke is in his element integrating and emphasizing the theater aspects of the story. Scenes of Takuto and his former partner's experimental stage plays show up here and there throughout the film. Miura also plays with reality in one wonderfully disorienting scene in which the camera pulls out to reveal all the protagonists on stage. Otherwise, conversation scenes are also often set up like a play, particularly when within the one-room setups of apartments and interview venues. Someone does not come across as overly stage directed as Miura's previous Love's Whirlpool, though, since the characters do venture often into the outside world.

While I have no desire to interpret the content of the play excerpts within the film, there is no doubt that Takuto releases himself through theater. The contrast between him being creative and expressive onstage, and nondescript and inscrutably spiteful in real life, leads one to wonder which is the real Takuto. Occupying the biggest yet least penetrable role, Satoh is effectively opaque as the unreliable narrator who masquerades his thoughts and emotions.

Someone's conflicts are mainly internal as battered tensions stem around people saying or interpreting words a certain way. Furthermore, the film presents more themes and threads than it resolves, which can make the characters' journeys feel inconclusive or incohesive at times. However, those themes should readily connect with audiences as employment anxiety, social media posing, passive-aggressive acquaintances and identity crisis are acutely relatable symptoms of modern living. The film calmly and painfully exposes how tenuous friendships, dreams and one's sense of self can be for a young person stepping out into a competitive society. In the end, we all may be that Someone we didn't want to become.
