Kueki Ressha

Official site:

Mirai Moriyama as Kanta Kitamachi
Kengo Kora as Shoji Kusakabe
Atsuko Maeda as Yasuko Sakurai

“Kueki Ressha” (苦役列車 The Drudgery Train) stars the much acclaimed actor Moriyama Mirai and the ambitious young actor Kora Kengo, while AKB48’s Maeda Atsuko takes on the role of a heroine that didn’t appear in the novel. Yamashita Nobuhiro 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.

“Kueki Ressha” is set to open in cinemas nationwide on July 14th.
