A middle-aged professional wrestler who lost his wife recently returns to Osaka, his home town, with his son Kazuo. However, Kazuo hates not only wrestling, but his father who couldn't be at the death bed of his mother. With appearance of several professional wrestlers, this film gently and humorously depicts the anguish of a wrestling villain being hated by his only child, and how he tries to restore the lost regard from his son.

This movie will take you back in time to the 1970s.

This movie will take you back in time to the 1970s. It's incredibly interesting and inspiring.
I loved the laid-back atmosphere and the suspicious villain-like good man. I thought after seeing this work. It's a martial arts-themed movie, but inside it is a human drama. when I saw the movie I was super impressed.
Even the original author, Ramo Nakajima, cried. I watched it without expecting it, but it was better than I expected.
The story goes on based on the interaction between Ushinosuke Shimoda and his son Kazuo, an elementary school student. The background of the era is that era when Gundam (First) began. As the story progressed, I was drawn into the content, and at the end I was moved to tears. When I saw the scene where the main character of this movie, an elementary school boy, was interacting with friends in the school, I myself slipped back in time when I was in elementary school.

Osaka movie

The story that progresses slowly and the life-sized characters convey the liveliness and warmth of Osaka. Even a drama series in the morning is fine.
I don't think he was doing that kind of production, but is it native? I feel Osaka. Osaka is full of humanity. If there is a genre called "Osaka movie", it is an entry without complaint.
A heart-warming story of parents and children. It is a story that children who feel inferior to their father can understand each other by looking at their parents' backs
I thought I had to watch it
someday , but I couldn't get my hands on it, but I took the plunge and watched it. No, I watched it until the end. A story that you can enjoy even if you are not a fan, and the performers who stand up as characters make you laugh. Lastly, I'm glad that Kamiki, who speaks the Kansai dialect, was bright.
