"My Uncle" World premiere
(2016/Japan/110min./ Distributed by Toei)
Director:Nobuhiro Yamashita
Cast:Ryuhei Matsuda, Riku Ohnishi, Yoko Maki, Shigeyuki Totsugi, Erika Toda

“My name is Yukio Haruyama and I am ten years old. One day I was given homework to write an essay about an adult who is close to me and I decided to write about my uncle who lives with us. The title is ‘My Uncle.’ He never gives me any allowance and never teaches me anything. He is hopeless in sports and always quibbling. Then, one day, my uncle and I go on a trip to Hawaii.”

The film is a long-awaited adaptation of the novel by the Akutagawa Prize winner, Morio Kita, full of his inherent humor. Director Nobuhiro Yamashita captivates the fans with his unique tempo and humor, and depicts the “ojisan (uncle)” played by Ryuhei Matsuda in a charming manner. Other talented and gorgeous members of the cast include the nephew played by Riku Ohnishi and a Madonna role played by Yoko Maki. “Ojisan” and a boy start a heartwarming adventure.
