Panorama / Music

Premier latinoamericana

Shiego gets amnesia after being struck. When he meets Kaumi, he discovers his talent for singing and becomes the lead singer in the band she manages. A romantic comedy about love, redemption, music, and second chances. 

If that wonderful film called Linda Linda Linda was Yamashita’s The Ramones-fueled film, Misono Universe can be interpreted –and heard– as its beatle reversion. The song may not be the same, but the director’s talent for pop comedy and characters as eccentric as lovable is still intact in this parable about the redemptive power of music –which, as Nick Hornby demanded, doesn’t need to ever use the word “redemption”. We won’t miss Doona Bae here, since Subaru Shibutani, the frontman of a famous J-Pop band, carries the lead vocals. Together with Fumi Nikaido –the enfant terrible from Why Don’t You Play in Hell?– they form one of most lovely duos of this Bafici, one that seems to emerge from the finest tradition of Hollywood screwball.
