あらすじ/Story: 1945年8月6日。新婚生活を送る清と生美は広島市で被爆。一命はとりとめたものの、清は背中全面に大火傷を負う。ある日、清の背中に残ったケロイドをアメリカ人ジャーナリストが撮影したいと入院中の病院を訪れた。清は撮影を強く拒むのだが…。 (C)Hiroshima Film Commission
August 6th 1945, A year after Kiyoshi and Ikumi got married, the two fell victim to the Atomic Bomb in Hiroshima but managed to survive. However, Kiyoshi's entire back was severely burned. One day, American journalists visited the hoepital to take photographs of the keloid scars on Kiyoshi’s back. Kiyoshi firmly refused the request… (C)Hiroshima Film Commission
During World War II, many young men were enlisted to Army and sent to the war zones overseas. Thanks to Ikumi's mothers prayers, Kiyoshi a 32 years-old guy, was introduced to Ikumi at a match-making meeting. After seeing Kiyoshi for the first time, Ikumi fell in love with Kiyoshi's back. Ikumi and Kiyoshi got married.
A year after their marriage, the first Atomic Bomb in the world history was dropped in Hiroshima city, where they lived. Both of them got atomic bomb radiation beams from the back and suffered severe burns. Next year, American journalists came to take photos of Atomic bomb victims at the hospital. The doctors recommended to take photos of Kiyoshi's back, because his back had the worst keloidal scar. Kiyoshi refused to show his back at first, but he decided to show it to let people know what the Atomic bomb victims were suffering.
Atomic bombs and victims are seldom talked in USA. They are only talked around August 6th and 9th, the memorial days, in Japan also. Many victims already passed away after 66 years. The tragedy like this should never happen again. So, we need to inform the public about what could happen from Atomic bomb bombing and radiation. Many suffer from radiation related cancer for years and from generation to generation. This is a story about a couple. There are thousands of victims and there are many stories for each victim.
From a viewpoint of me who has created movies as a member of Film Study Club in highschool, this movie was well created. It handled the serious subject matter, Atomic bomb victims, not too serious, light touch, and easier to view for many audiences. It focused the attentions to one couple, so that was good. There were several American audience at the movie screening in Irvine, a suburb of Los Angeles last week. To screen this movie in USA, it might be better to re-record the film with English lines. So, the emotions of the victims will come arrive.
Mr. Tomoki Deyama (photo) is the director and co-writer of this film. He is also a NHK TV news anchorman. As I searched Internet, he is ranked the top 2 popular male anchorman in Japan. Ms. Hisako Deyama came to Japan Film Festival LA 2011 as a movie producer and to greet the audience. She is from Hiroshima city. She worked for 10 years as a TV director for a company related to National Broadcasting Association of Japan and made documentaries, travel journals, varieties, music, and etc. TV programs from 1994. For this movie, she was in charge of producing, costumes, and art. They have three children.
Mr.Mamoru Samuragoch composed the music "Symphony No.1" when he was 17 years old and when he started to suffer migraine headaches and hearing problems with unknown cause. He was born in Hiroshima. Both of his parents are Hiroshima Atomic bomb victims. He was taught Piano and Violin since he was 4 years old. He continued to compose music with absolute pitch although his hearing was getting worse and worse. Especially the back of his head keeps ringing in his ears. He thinks the ringing sounds must be the "sounds of the Atomic bombs" that his parents heard when they fell victims of the bombs. His conditions worsen with sunbeams, so he always wears sunglasses and a big hat when he goes out and stays in dark rooms at home. His music "Symphony Rising Sun" in the computer game "Onimusha"(Demon Warrior) got spotlights in 1999.
