The tenth film from director Yoshihiro Nakamura, this quirky little film called Fish Story will be screening at the New York Asian Film Festival.
What’s quirky? Here’s the plot, straight from Subway Films: “In 1975, the year before the Sex Pistols released their first album, a Japanese punk band called Gekirin recorded their single, “Fish Story” and then they broke up, never to record again. Thirty-seven years later, in 2012, their song saves the world. This is the tenth film from Yoshihiro Nakamura and we’re not saying any more about it.
Because it really happened. A punk single from 1975 traveled to the future and saved us all. Any more information than that would deprive you of the surprises and the fun of watching one of the year’s best films. It’s a movie that reminds us of something we all forget from time to time: your life has a purpose. Even if you never understand it, you’re here for a reason.”
