YesAsia Editorial Description

Winner of Best Picture and Best Actor at the 33rd Japan Academy Awards, The Sun That Doesn't Set (a.k.a. The Unbroken) is inspired by the events of the 1985 Japan Airlines Flight 123 tragedy, the second deadliest aviation accident in history. The media angle of the JAL123 tragedy was recently covered in the 2008 feature Climber's High. Based on Yamasaki Toyoko's best-selling novel, The Sun That Doesn't Set looks at the incident from the perspective of a sympathetic airline representative tasked to console and settle with the victims' families.

Acclaimed actor Watanabe Ken delivers an award-winning performance as airline union head Onchi Hajime whose fight to improve working conditions crosses the corporate honchos and gets him transferred out of Japan. He spends the next ten years working in branch offices in Pakistan, Iran, Kenya, and other far-off places. After years of trials, Onchi is finally called back to Japan - to deal with the country's worst aviation accident ever. Directed by Wakamatsu Setsuro (Whiteout), The Sun That Doesn't Set features an impressive supporting cast that includes Miura Tomokazu, Kagawa Teruyuki, Matsuyuki Yasuko, Suzuki Kyoka, Ishizaka Koji, Kimura Tae, and Toda Erika.

Product Information

タイトル:沈まぬ太陽 スタンダード・エディション

昭和30年代—。巨大企業・国民航空社員の労働組合委員長、恩地 元(渡辺 謙)。組合委員長として職場環境の改善に取り組んだ結果、恩地を待っていたのは会社からの海外赴任辞令だった。恩地はパキスタン、イラン、そして路線の就航もないケニアへと赴任。会社は帰国をちらつかせ、恩地に組合からの脱退を迫る一方で、露骨に組合の分断を図っていた。そんな中、共に闘った同期の行天四郎(三浦友和)は早々に組合を抜け、エリートコースを歩みはじめる。同僚でありながら行天の愛人の国際線客室乗務員・三井美樹(松雪泰子)は、対照的な人生を歩む2人を冷静に見続ける。行天の裏切り、更に妻・りつ子(鈴木京香)ら家族との長年にわたる離れ離れの生活—。焦燥感と孤独とが、恩地を次第に追いつめていく。十年におよび僻地での不遇な海外勤務に耐え、本社へ復帰を果たしたものの、恩地への待遇が変わることはなかった。逆境の日々のなか、ついに「その日」はおとずれる。航空史上最大のジャンボ機墜落事故。想像を絶する犠牲者の数—遺体の検視、事故原因の究明、補償交渉。救援隊として現地に赴き、遺族係を命ぜられた恩地は、誰も経験をしたことがない悲劇に直面し、苦悩する。墜落は、起こるべくして起きた事故だったのか。政府は組織の建て直しを図るべく、新会長に国見正之(石坂浩二)の就任を要請。恩地は新設された会長室の室長に抜擢される。「きみの力を借りたい」。国見の真摯な説得が恩地を動かした。しかし、それは終わりなき暗闇の始まりだった・・・・・・。
物語は日本が高度経済成長を実現し世界経済の頂点へと上りつめていく時代。巨大組織の中で翻弄されながらも、強い信念と不屈の精神をもって、どんな過酷な状況をも克服していく男、恩地 元。『沈まぬ太陽』は、その生き方を通して、人間の尊厳と、飽くなき闘志と再生を描く、壮大なる人間の叙事詩である。新聞記者という来歴を持ち、常に社会への警鐘を鳴らす作品を発表し続けてきた原作者・山崎豊子自身が映像化を熱望、「この作品の映画化を見るまでは決して死ぬことは出来ない」と言わしめるほどの著者渾身の一作。映像化不可能とまでいわれた、原作の持つスケール観と時代背景を克明に再現するため、製作陣は万全の態勢を整えて臨んだ。そして、原作の刊行から10年の時を経た2009年10月—日本人の魂を揺さぶる感動と慟哭の物語。
