YesAsia Editorial Description

From Kudo Kankuro, writer of Go and Ping Pong, comes the surreal samurai flick Mayonaka no Yaji-san Kita-san. Kudo makes his directorial debut with this film adaptation of a manga by Shiriagai Kotobuki, which itself was based on Jippensha Ikku's classic novel Tokkaidochu Hizakurige. But rather than create a slavish adaptation, Kudo has chosen to re-imagine the world according to his own out-there sensibilities!

The film has all the markings of a period drama, but sports enough anachronisms and non sequiturs to make his audience's collective head spin. The film centers on the gay couple of Yajirobe (Tokio frontman Nagase Tomoya) and Kitachachi (Nakamura Shichinosuke) as they live their lives in Edo. But the two men have their fair share of problems: Kitachachi is an unemployed, drug-addicted actor, while Yaji suffers from nightmares that have pushed him to the brink of sanity. On a whim, the two head off to the Ise Shrine in the hopes of curing what ails them. But since this is an anything goes comedy, the not-so-happy couple don't go by horseback, but instead hop on a modern-day motorcycle!

Things get even stranger when they reach the Inn of Laughs where they meet a stoic gatekeeper (Takeuchi Riie) who demands they make him laugh in order to pass. Making plenty of allies and enemies on their journey, the two eventually reach the Inn of Songs and then finally, the Inn of the King, where they happen to encounter, of all people, King Arthur of Camelot! Needless to say, the deliriously paced Mayonaka no Yaji-san Kita-san is one strange, wild ride not to be missed!

    * Director : 쿠도 칸쿠로

    ■ 만화가 시리아가리 고토부키(しりあがり壽)가 그린 3편의 원작을, 영화 (2001)와 <핑 퐁>(2002)의 작가 쿠도 칸쿠로가 영화화한 그의 감독 데뷔작이다. 그룹 토키오의 일원인 나가세 토모야와 가부키 출신의 나카무라 시치노스케가 에도 시대의 게이 커플로 출연, 끈끈한 애정행각을 펼친다.

    ■ 2시간 내내 쉴새 없이 몰아치는 숨 넘어가도록 웃기게 만드는 개그만으로도 이 영화를 봐야할 이유는 충분할 터. 거기다 현실과 환상, 과거와 현재, 사극과 현대극을 오가며 정신 없게 웃던 사이 하나씩 던져졌던 실마리들이 하나의 결론으로 모이는 순간의 통쾌함과 이 모든 요소를 축제에 가까운 감각으로 풀어내는 감독의 개성과 연출력은 신선하기 그지없다.

    ■ 츠마부키 사토시, 아라타, 고이케 에이코, 테라지마 스스무, 아베 사다요 등은 물론 일본 문화에 관심있는 이라면 익숙할 수많은 연예인들이 카메오로 등장, 방심할 틈 없는 재미를 선사한다.

    에도 시대의 일본, 코끼리라는 커다란 동물이 어딘가에 살고 있다는 것이 너무도 신기하고 믿기지 않던 시절. 상점주인 야지(나가세 토모야)와 약물중독 배우 키타(나카무라 시치노스케)는 게이 커플이다. 이들은 키타의 약물중독을 치료하고 둘의 사랑을 확인하기 위해 어떤 소원이든 이루어진다는 이세를 향해 여행을 떠나고 웃음의 여관, 기쁨의 여관, 노래의 여관 등을 거치는 그들의 요절복통할 모험이 시작된다. 한편, 그들의 고향에선 야지의 부인(고이케 에이코)이 시체로 발견되고 야지를 범인으로 의심한 관리(아베 사다요)가 그를 추적하기 시작한다. 과연 두 사람은 무사히 이세에 도착, 그들만의 사랑을 완성할 수 있을까…

    Professional Review of "Mayonaka no Yaji San Kita San Special Limited Edition DTS (Korean Version)"

    June 30, 2005

    This professional review refers to Mayonaka no Yaji San Kita San DTS Standard Edition (Japan Version - English Subtitles)
    I haven't seen any of Kudo Kankuro's work before, but I'm very tempted now. Yaji and Kita: the Midnight Pilgrims is one of the weirdest things I've seen for a long time; it sucks you in to Yaji and Kita's world, and then systematically hits you over the head with a cinematic rubber chicken for two hours.

    The plot (which comes from a classic novel, by way of a manga adaptation - it's been filmed before as Yajikita Dochu Sugoroku by Chiba Yasuki in 1958) concerns two samurai-class men, Yajirobei and Kitahachi. They live in Edo in period Japan, and decide to go on a pilgrimage to the Ise Shrine, meeting a variety of colourful characters on the way. This is all the two stories have in common, from what I can tell. In this version, though, there are a few little differences. Yaji and Kita are gay lovers, each with their own personal problems. Yaji suffers from terrible nightmares (one involving people floating down a river on blocks, Tetris-style) and Kita's a drug addict, forever chasing little blue pills, magic mushrooms or a syringe. The journey, then, is an idea hit upon by Yaji; he'll find himself and cure his nightmares, and Kita will go cold turkey and kick his array of habits.

    The whole first scene is filmed in black and white, in a period setting, and suddenly the world bursts into colour, as the pair of them go dancing down the road singing (with backing dancers) about being "Born,- Born to be Gay!" At the end of the road, an enormous brightly-painted motorcycle awaits them and they go zooming off into the modern world. Seconds later they're sent back to period Japan by a traffic cop for exceeding the speed limit. Oh well.

    The rest of Yaji and Kita... is equally manic and bizarre, with the story weaving drunkenly across a period Japanese landscape and the two lead actors switching quite rapidly between broad physical comedy, wordplay and serious, emotional acting. It's quite a ride, and there are some very funny scenes along the way, including an encounter with King Arthur and his sword Excalibur; Yaji's trip to purgatory, which is a bath-house full of identical men (souls) in yellow towels; and a quiet bar for dead souls who exist only in their lovers' dreams.

    It all makes a weird kind of internal sense, though, and is in some ways reminiscent of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. There's a lot of wordplay which will probably make more sense to Japanese speakers (though the subtitlers have done an excellent job and tried to get the point across), but it's very accessible, so long as you're not someone who only watches "serious cinema".

    A new style movie Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    It's really a very special movie! There are mobile, high school girls etc running in the movie, the point is, the background is in the period of Edo(the ancient Japan)!!! The story itself is quite interesting and laughing. The two guys are lovers, and they overcame many problems, and meet different people. There are sad feelings mixed with the laughing scenes. A contradictory story full of meaning truth. Like this movie very very much!
