Playwright/scriptwriter/variety show creator Fukuda Yuichi (33 Minute Detective
) makes his directorial debut with Chasing My Girl
, a crazy comedy depicting the desperate measures men will go to in the name of love. Adapted from his own play, Yuichi gathers an ensemble cast led by Yamada Takayuki (Crows Zero
) and Yamamoto Yusuke (Rookies the Movie - Graduation
) in a single setting for a hilarious battle of wits.
In a small seaside town on Christmas Eve, long considered a lovers' holiday in Japan, seven men gather in a house after each receiving an invitation from the town femme fatale Eriko (Toda Erika). When they realize Eriko isn't in the house, the men assume that they're there to eliminate each other in a fight for her affection. Who will come out on top? Why did Eriko gather the men together? And where did she go?
This edition includes stage greeting, making of, and visual commentary by Yamada Takayuki, Muro Tsuyoshi, and writer/director Fukuda Yuichi.
