The short life of singer-songwriter Ozaki Yutaka, who died suddenly in 1992 at the age of 26, will be dramatized for the first time on the TV Tokyo production, "Kaze no shounen ~ Ozaki Yutaka eien no densetsu".
Cast & Credits
Narimiya recorded several of Ozaki's hits for the soundtrack. While he does not sound like a professional singer, he did decently well with them, and his charisma makes up for any lack of singing skill. He was coached by Ozaki's former producer/manager in preparation for the film. Compared to Ozaki's original tracks, Narimiya does a good job capturing the original style and feel of the music.
I will definitely rewatch this again. It's a heartwarming and enjoyable two hours. Covering themes like growing up and finding one's place in society, growing as an artist and going through dry periods, and struggling with family issues and drug abuse, it is pretty inspiring. This is Narimiya at his best.
