YesAsia Editorial Description

It's tough being a man, as Tora-san found out repeatedly over 49 films from 1969 to 1995. Japan's longest-running film series, Otoko wa Tsurai yo started out as a television drama in 1968 before jumping to the big screen in 1969 with Yamada Yoji at the helm and Atsumi Kiyoshi in the iconic role of traveling salesman Tora-san. For the next 26 years, Tora-san would like timework grace Japan's big screens up to four times a year, continuing his unfortunate romantic adventures around the country. For the Tora-san film series' 50th anniversary, the cast and characters return in the 50th entry Tora-san, Wish You Were Here for reunions and reminiscing.

Tora-san, Wish You Were Here catches up with different beloved characters in Tora-san's orbit, including his sister Sakura (Baisho Chieko), brother-in-law Hiroshi (Maeda Gin) and nephew Mitsuo (Yoshioka Hidetaka), who has become a novelist. After a memorial service for Mitsuo's late wife, the family has a gathering and tells boisterous stories about Tora-san. On another day, Mitsuo runs into his first love Izumi (Goto Kumiko) at a bookstore signing. The two visit Tora-san's old girlfriend Lily (Asaoka Ruriko) who shares something unexpected about Tora-san's past. Atsumi Kiyoshi, who passed away in 1996, appears in the film through old footage.

Professional Review of "Tora-san, Wish You Were Here (2019) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)"

October 29, 2020

This professional review refers to Tora-san, Wish You Were Here (Blu-ray) (Normal Edition) (English Subtitled) (Japan Version)
In recent years, American film and television fans have seen reunions and reboots of beloved titles such as Full House, Will & Grace, Mary Poppins, Scooby Doo, 30 Rock and The Terminator. In Japan, television stations have also brought back old favorites with long-awaited new seasons of popular series like Kekkon Dekinai Otoko, Haken no Hinkaku, Hanzawa Naoki and even a newly cast season of Zettai Reido. Regardless of the quality of these reboots, media executives and producers still believe that nostalgia sells.

With even Godzilla getting reboots in both Japan (Shin Godzilla) and the U.S. (as part of Warner Brother's new MonsterVerse), it's no surprise that 2019 would see the reunion of another long-running Japanese film franchise. From 1969 to 1997, director Yamada Yoji wrote 49 films in the Otoko wa Tsurai yo series. Starring Atsumi Kiyoshi, the series follows the adventures of Tora-san, a traveling salesman, and his family and neighbors back in his home neighborhood of Shibamata.

Still the Guinness World Record holder of the longest-running film series featuring a single actor, the Otoko series presumably ended when Atsumi died of lung cancer in 1996, though the 1997 special edition of 1980's Tora-san's Tropical Fever is officially marked the 49th film of the series. But for the 50th anniversary of the franchise, Yamada reunited the surviving cast members for Tora-san: Wish You Were Here, which brings the series to a nicely rounded 50 films.

Set in present day, Wish You Were Here is a mix of "where are they now" cast reunion, clip show and heartfelt tribute to Tora-san. Yoshioka Hidetoshi, who joined the series at the age of 11 in 1981, reprises the role of Tora-san's nephew Mitsuo, whose coming-of-age made him the series' second protagonist in the later films. The story begins as Mitsuo, now a middle-aged novelist with a teenage daughter, returns to his family home in Shimabata to commemorate the seventh anniversary of his wife's death. As characters reunite, old memories resurface.

A delightful treat for longtime fans and surprisingly accessible to newcomers, Wish You Were Here strikes the perfect balance between a continuation of the Tora-san universe and a nostalgic trip down memory lane. Roughly half the film is composed of recently restored clips of old Tora-san films (rumors of a computer-generated Tora-san, fortunately, turned out to be untrue), but they are cleverly used to show audiences how time has changed each character. For example, clips of young Mitsuo with his first love, Izumi, provide a contrast to middle-aged Mitsuo, now a single father devoted to raising his daughter.

Wish You Were Here is as much about remembering Atsumi and Tora-san as it is about regrets and missed opportunities. Whether it's the reappearance of one of Tora-san's "Madonnas" – failed potential romantic partners who drift in and out of Tora-san's life like Bond girls – or Izumi (Goto Kumiko), the film strikes a bittersweet tone despite also being bathed in warm nostalgia. While many recent reboots are about reviving old characters to prolong their respective franchises' shelf life, Wish You Were Here is a wistful epilogue that sets out to provide proper closure for fans without leaving newcomers behind. Any producer that is looking to reboot an old franchise should look to Wish You Were Here as the new gold standard.
