21st Fuji TV Young Scenario Taishou  

A strong performance from Yamamoto Yusuke in a role of murderer

November 11th, 2009

The winner of [21st Fuji TV Young Scenario Taishou] was announced on 11th at the television headquarters at Daiba, Tokyo. From 1450 applications was chosen Kuwamura Sayaka-san's (age 27) work [Rinne no Ame]. A stage appearance as a surprise guest was made by a starring actors who presented a bouquet of flowers to scriptwriter. The leading part of committing murder was trusted to 21 year old Yamamoto Yusuke and his mentally-handicapped younger brother is played by Seto Koji (21). Recording of drama has already finished.

Yamamoto said [It's a work with truely deep thought, so it wouldn't be good if emotions aren't shown with proper care. When acting I hoped that people will feel that even mentally-handicapped person have different kind of feelings.] Seto Koji commented [Before filming began, we rehearsed and read the script countless times and also watched various related footages. This work has a difficult theme yet handled by young people which is wonderful. I would be happy if this work leaves an impression on viewers.] Yamamoto who showed a deep affection towards younger brother said with a smile to Kuwamura-san who was also impressed by strong performance [At first, there was inexplicable tension, like being afraid of smth. We were worried if our acting was good enough.]

The work describes the bound between siblings of whom one is mentally handicapped who, after the death of mother, are abandoned by father. It's a serious and heavy drama. Although the younger brother is an employee it's his older brother who is living the life out but with an unexpected event his degradation stops, making this a socially strong work - [The conflict of protagonist: swinging between "affection" and "hate hard" toward little brother and suffering deep inside the heart from irrationality of society - is shown very finely with a light touch].

The protagonist Mikami Kouhei (Yamamoto Yusuke) is abandoned by his father after mother passed away. He lives together with his mentally disabled younger brother Shuhei (Seto Koji), who is working in factory where he is abused by manager on daily basis. When older brother finds it out manager threatens to report about disturbance to police. Kouhei then kills the manager and with a help of Shuhei they bury the corpse at the mountain. When police start to investigate the matter detectives Tokunaga (Nagai Masaru) and Aoki (Aoki Munetaka) start to suspect Mikami brothers because Shuhei is speechless. Shuhei is taught about [arranged murder] and persuaded that [bad people can start a fresh life with doing good things] but the stress from not accepting that the brother is killer becomes the deciding factor to speak with police and a friend of Kouhei

heh I just now realised that it is going to be his first leading role on screen - honestly, I AM slow if I caught this fact just now lol

I'm with you about "can't wait" - he actually manages to choose (most of the time) works that I would watch even if the cast would be different (ok, probably ^^;) so at the end of all this blah, blah..I agree with what they write about him in magazines: Yamamoto-san is steadily making his name.

As Far as I can remember Yusukesan used to play leading role in My fair boy also in his early year, but that drama is very hard to find.
