The Story of Yonosuke

This is one of the most uplifting films you will ever see and shows us how the impact of one person can make you believe that to love life really does mean to love it for everything.

THE STORY OF YONOSUKE is OKITA Shuichi’s follow up to THE WOODSMAN AND THE RAIN (screened at 2012 Terracotta Far East Film Festival) is one of the biggest hits this year at International film festivals; its touching characters and story make it easy to understand why.

Yonosuke takes pleasure in life’s simplest things and his positivity touches and alters everyone around him, from his college friends to his work colleagues in later life. Through the recounting of the friends experiences of Yonosuke, we start to build-up his story, his character, piecing everything together about him and where he is today.

Without a doubt a ‘dream-team’ of creative talent in director OKITA Shuichi, author YOSHIDA Shuichi (VILLAIN), screen-writer MAEDA Shiro (ISN’T ANYONE ALIVE?) and rising star KORA Kengo (FISH STORY), coming together to make a film which you’ll love more and more with each watch.
