【Left of Chopin】
My first feature film
Although this is a story about a pianist, it is also about me.
The protagonist, Kentaro is obsessed with becoming the best. The
piano is just a tool for achieving his goal. In the final scene, he
hears music that changes him - something that seemed impossible.
While making independent movies I was always thinking [How do I get
nominated] [How do I win the festival?] - I felt hollow whether I
won or not.
Then, I saw a movie that touched my heart. It opened my eyes to the
fact that what touches you must be sincere. In this film, I tried to
communicate that with sound.
