Winner of five awards from the Japanese Academy, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Actress, internationally acclaimed director KinjiFukasaku’s“Fall Guy” is a moving love story and a heartfelt valentine to the movies.
Ginshiro is, a vain and selfish actor whose stardom is threatened by rising star Tachibana. In a desperate bid to burnish his image, Ginshiro compels a devoted member of his entourage, Yasu, to marry Ginshiro’s pregnant mistress, Konatsu. To support his new wife, the devoted Yasu becomes a stunt man, performing increasingly dangerous stunts. Konatsu is torn between Yasu and Ginshiro, who compels his loyal disciple to perform a death-defying stunt that could save the film and Ginshiro’s career.
Presented by The Consulate-General of Japan, The University of Waikato, and The Japan Culture Centre, Sydney (The Japan Foundation).
