Just saw Yokomichi Yonosuke with English subtitles (the English title is "A Story of Yonosuke", and the film was released in Japan on February 23 of this year)
The film takes place in the 80's, and also several years later when many of the cast are fondly remembering an interesting lad that they met back in University days. That young man is Yonosuke Yokomichi, played very ably by actor Kengo Kora. Yuriko Yoshitaka is wonderful in the role of a girl from a very wealthy family, who first meets Yonosuke on an arranged double date.
Of course, Yuriko has her own thread here at JPH!P, as does co-star Aki Asakura, who plays another freshman at the university, along with actor Sosuke Ikimatsu. Lots of good supporting actors in the film, including Go Ayano and Ayumi Ito.
Director is Shuichi Okita, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Shiro Maeda. The film was adapted from the novel by Shuichi Yoshida.
Some critics complained about the 160 minute length of the film, but I felt the film moved along very well, with the dual need to establish the characters and the time period.
I would recommend the film as a very well crafted character driven film, with some very funny moments and some very touching moments. The film, just like the title character, will leave the viewer with some really nice memories.
