On April 27th, the official website for the upcoming live-action adaptation of Nishimura Kenta’s award-winning novel “Kueki Ressha” revealed a full trailer.
“Kueki Ressha” stars the much acclaimed actor Moriyama Mirai and the ambitious young actor Kora Kengo, while AKB48’s Maeda Atsuko takes on the role of aheroine that didn’t appear in the novel. Yamashita Nobuhiro (“My Back Page”) directed the live-action adaptation.
The story is set in 1986 and depicts the life of the junior high graduate ‘Kitamachi Kanta’ (Moriyama) who neither has money, friends nor a girlfriend. He’s making a living as a day laborer and one day he meets the vocational school student ‘Kusakabe Shoji’ (Kora). They actually start to develop and maintain a great friendship. With the help of Kusakabe, Kitamachi also manages to become friends with ‘Sakurai Yasuko’ (Maeda), an employee at a second hand book store with whom he has fallen in love at first sight.
However, the more he hangs out with Kusakabe, the more their friendship starts to crumble due to Kitamachi’s delusional jealousy towards his friend. Moreover he isn’t able to keep his distance towards Sakurai, which initially leads to a rejection. All those experiences eventually help him to finally mature as a person.
The trailer features various scenes that spark curiosity, such as Moriyama, Kora, and Maeda having fun at the sea in just their underwear; Moriyama licking Maeda’s hand; and a kiss scene between the two in the middle of a downpour.
“Kueki Ressha” is set to open in cinemas nationwide on July 14th.
