Summary

Welcome Back, Mr McDonald movie scenes

A late-night live broadcast of a radio drama begins with none of the cast or crew being pleased with the project. When the lead actress Nokko Senbon (Keiko Toda) decides she won't play her role unless she's allowed to change her character's name, the whole cast eventually insists on changing various parts of the play to their liking. This begins a chain of events that completely changes every aspect of the story and requires the entire staff to participate in completing the drama, all while live on the air.

  • Trivia

    Welcome Back, Mr. McDonald Welcome Back Mr McDonald 1997 Mel
  • This film was also released at the Berlin International Film Festival.
  • This film was originally a play starring the Tokyo Sunshine Boys in Japan.
  • This film is the first film ever directed by Kōki Mitani. In the "making of" commentary included on the Japanese DVD, Mitani claimed that he worried the scenes were too long—as a theatre writer, he did not know how to write short scenes.
  • Ken Watanabe plays the Truckdriver Yaro. He played a similar character in the movie Tampopo, a movie directed by Juzo Itami. Another homage to Itami is a cameo by Itami's wife, Nobuko Miyamoto who starred in all of Itami's movies, including Tampopo.
