YesAsia Editorial Description

Yamada Yoji writes a heartfelt love letter to Japanese cinema in It's a Flickering Life, which commemorates the centennial of Shochiku film studio. Based on Harada Maha's novel Kinema no Kamisama, the magical tale of love, friendship, family and the golden age of movies bears the legendary director's unmistakable signature of warm nostalgia. Sawada Kenji (Happiness of the Katakuris) and Suda Masaki (I Fell in Love Like a Flower Bouquet) essay the same protagonist at different ages, revealing the life story of a man who continued to believe in the "God of Cinema" over 50 years.

Goh (Sawada Kenji) is a hopeless gambler and deadbeat dad, and his wife (Miyamoto Nobuko) and daughter have already given up on him. There's only one thing that Goh has ever wholeheartedly loved: movies. In his youth, Goh (Suda Masaki) and friend Terashin (Noda Yojiro) worked at a film studio. Surrounded by famous directors and actors, they pursued their movie dreams together, but things began to change when they fell for the same girl (Nagano Mei). On the first day of filming for Goh's first directorial work, he gets seriously injured in an accident, and his movie dream becomes an illusion. In 2020, half a century later, the script for Kinema no Kamisama reappears, and Goh's dream begins to awaken again.

松竹映画100周年を記念作品。日本映画界を代表する山田洋次監督が、人気小説家・原田マハによる同名小説をオリジナルの映画作品へと昇華させた。これは、"映画の神様"を信じ続けた男の人生とともに紡がれる愛と友情、そして家族の物語。ダブル主演を務めるのは当初出演予定だった志村けんの遺志を継ぐ沢田研二と、誰もがその人気と実力を認める俳優・菅田将暉。更に日本を代表する名女優・宮本信子と若手人気女優・永野芽郁など豪華なスタッフ/キャストが集結。――無類のギャンブル好きなゴウは妻の淑子と娘の歩にも見放されたダメ親父。そんな彼にも、たった一つだけ愛してやまないものがあった。それは「映画」――。行きつけの名画座の館主・テラシンとゴウは、かつて映画の撮影所で働く仲間だった。若き日のゴウは助監督として、映写技師のテラシンを始め、時代を代表する名監督やスター女優の園子、また撮影所近くの食堂の看板娘・淑子に囲まれながら夢を追い求め、青春を駆け抜けていた。しかしゴウは初監督作品の撮影初日に転落事故で大怪我をし、その作品は幻となってしまう。半世紀後の2020年。あの日の『キネマの神様』の脚本が出てきたことで、ゴウの中で止まっていた夢が再び動き始める――。
