Plot

Anata e Dearest Anata e AsianWiki

The story follows the journey of a man travelling some 300 kilometres from Toyama City, Japan to his wife's hometown in Nagasaki Prefecture, in order to scatter her ashes into the sea. Along the way he travels through many famous locations (Osaka, the ruins of Takeda Castle, Shimonoseki City, the Kanmon Bridge, Moji-ku, Kitakyūshū, and Sasebo, Nagasaki), recalling experiences with his wife along the way. He also befriends and is assisted by numerous strangers.

Cast

  • Ken Takakura as Eiji Kurashima
  • Yuko Tanaka as Yoko, his wife
  • Kitano Takeshi as Sugino Teruo, van-driving Japanese literature teacher
  • Tadanobu Asano as cop
  • Tsuyoshi Kusanagi as Tamiya Yuji, food-stall cook
  • Kōichi Satō as "Nambara", food-stall cook and former fisherman
  • Haruka Ayase as Naoko Hamazaki, young waitress and Nambara's daughter

  • Hideji Ōtaki as Ohura Goro, elderly boat owner, and estranged father of Nambara
  • Production

    Around the time of filming, Takakura was 80 years of age - much older than the probable working age of the prison carpentry instructor he was portraying (given that the common retirement age in Japan is usually 60). Hideji Ōtaki, who played the cranky old skipper, died a few months after the film's release.
