My Dad is a Heel Wrestler (Papa wa Warumono Champion), dir. Kyohei Fujimura, Japan 2018, 111 min., Japanese with English subtitles, PG


Pro wrestling champion Hiroshi Tanahashi makes his acting debut as the gentle giant father of nine-year-old Shota, whose understanding of goodies versus baddies is challenged in the wrestling arena when he discovers his father actually plays a despicable character called Gokiburi (Cockroach).

Inspired by the children’s book Papa no shigoto wa warumono desu, first-time director Kyohei Fujimura conveys a heart-warming tale about the man behind the cockroach mask.
