YesAsia Editorial Description

Two fractured souls trapped in dire lives find a glimmer of hope in each other in The Light Shines Only There, a critically acclaimed romantic drama by director Oh Mipo (Sakaike no Shiawase). Based on a novel by the late Sato Yasushi (Sketches of Kaitan City), the film won the Best Director prize at the World Film Festival in Montreal and is Japan's representative at the 2015 Academy Awards' Best Foreign Film competition.

Ayano Go (The Snow White Murder Case) stars as Tatsuo, an unemployed young man who spends his days in pachinko parlors and wandering around the city of Hakodate. After becoming friends with Takuji at the pachinko parlor, Tatsuo meets Takuji's older sister Chinatsu (Ikewaki Chizuru), who lives carrying the burden of her deadbeat brother and senile father. Tatsuo and Chinatsu eventually fall in love, but that love isn't enough to make them forget about their troubles in their respective lives.

This edition includes making of, stage events and trailers. It also comes with a 24-page booklet.

Product Information

愛を捨てた男と、愛を諦めた女。函館の一瞬の夏を舞台に、二つの魂が邂逅する。 何度も芥川賞候補に挙げられながらも賞に恵まれず、41歳で自ら命を絶った不遇の作家・佐藤泰志。短い函館の夏を舞台に、生きる目的を見失った男と愛を諦めた女との出会い、そして底辺で生きる家族を慈しむような眼差しで描き、唯一の長編小説にして最高傑作と言われる「そこのみにて光輝く」の、発刊から24年を経ての待望の映画化。主演は綾野剛。「脚本を3行読んだだけで、出演を決めた」と語り、ノーメイクで生(なま)の芝居にこだわり抜いた話題作。監督は『オカンの嫁入り』で新藤兼人賞を受賞し高い評価を得てきた呉美保。モントリオール世界映画祭コンペティション部門正式出品作品。――ある出来事がきっかけに仕事を辞め、目的もなく毎日を過ごしていた佐藤達夫(綾野剛)は、ある日パチンコ屋で使い捨てライターをあげたことをきっかけに、粗暴だが人なつこい青年・大城拓児(菅田将暉)と知り合う。拓児に誘われるままについていくと、そこは取り残されたように存在している一軒のバラックだった。そこで達夫は拓児の姉・千夏(池脇千鶴)と出会う。互いに心惹かれ、二人は距離を縮めていくが、千夏は家族を支えるため、達夫の想像以上に過酷な日常を生きていた。それでも、千夏への一途な愛を貫こうとする達夫。達夫のまっすぐな想いに揺れ動かされる千夏。千夏の魂にふれたことから、達夫の現実が静かに色づきはじめ、達夫は失いかけていたこの世界への希求を取り戻していく。そんなとき、ある事件が起こる――。 豪華版は、メイキング、完成披露試写会(東京)、完成披露試写会(函館)、初日舞台挨拶、劇場予告編&TVスポット集を収録した特典ディスク付き。ブックレット(24P)封入。
