Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme: Bolt from the Blue

31 Jan 2015

This heart-warming film tells a story about family, ambition and the consequences of the choices that we make.

Haruo (Yo Oizumi) can’t seem to catch a break. Broke and tending bars for a living after failing to become a successful stage magician, he gets a phone call informing him that his estranged father has passed away.

On the way to collect his father’s belongings, Haruo is struck by a lightning bolt and sent back to the past, to a date not long before he is born and bumps into his ‘future’ father and mother. 

This uplifting film, based on director and comedian Gekidan Hitori’s own novel, was a huge box office success in Japan, telling a story about family, ambition and the consequences of the choices that we make.
