” Terrolun and Lunlun ” – a painfully human praise is told behind the beautiful scenery of Tadanoumi
November 23, at NTT CRED Hall, there was a screening of "Terrolun and Lunlun".
From an encounter to a farewell between a young man, Rui (Amane Okayama), who secludes himself in the garage of his home and a hearing-impaired high school student, Rumi (Rina Ono) behind the scenery of Tadanoumi (in Takehara City), living painfully and positively. The title refers to that. Rui is called Terrolun after he caused an incident, and Rumi is called Lunlun from meaningful classmates.
After the screening, Director Hiroyuki Miyagawa, leading actor Amane Okayama and Rina Ono appeared suddenly from the back of the hall and the talk show started. The interviewer was Mr. Michita Kimura, a freelance personality.
It was impressive that, “First of all,” two leading actors said, "it is the first time to see the final edition.” Ms. Ono said, "Honestly, I was afraid of seeing, but now I thought, it is a good story."
Mr. Okayama and Ms. Ono also talked about the scenery of Tadanoumi and the kindness of Tadanoumi people and were applauded by the people from Tadanoumi who was listening to it.
Director Miyagawa explained, "This work has been skipped over the passage of time intentionally and I want to imagine audiences in various ways."
He was told about the inside story behind the scenes, he revealed, "When Ms. Ono got lost during shooting and everyone searched her, she was eating sweets at a house of people living in the neighborhood.”
When the audience asked, "Do you think Terrolun and Lunlun resonated because their hearts and bodies have injuries or if Lunlun is ordinary people, this story does not hold?" The director said, "This story is a depiction of connection between minds of solitary ones. There is no relationship with their problems directly."
Finally, the director said, "It's short, but as each cut has meaning, I hope you enjoy it." Mr. Okayama said, “I hope lonely people will be encouraged like this hero.” Ms. Ono said, "I have watched this movie many times, but it never gets boring. I want you to see it over and over.” Then the talk show ended.
