A Story Of Yonosuke

Shuichi Okita's follow-up to The Woodsman And The Rain is a coming of age romance based on a novel by Shuichi Yoshida (who wrote Villain), about a student, the titular Yonosuke (Kengo Kora), who moves from Nagasaki to Tokyo in 1987. He is ordinary, and easily overlooked, until he joins the university samba club and learns to dance. Yuriko Yoshitaka, from the live action Gantz movies, plays Shoko, the object of Yonosuke's affections. The film does not open in Japan until 23 February 2013, but Third Window has already secured the UK rights and is aiming for a summer release.
