The Legend of Star Dust Brothers

The Legend of Star Dust Brothers (Hoshikuzu Kyōdai no Densetsu, 1985, dir. Tezuka Makoto) BETWEEN CINEMA AND THEATRE SECTION

In 1985, Tezuka Makoto , the son of manga genius Tezuka Osamu , was still a film student with a few experimental shorts to his credit and who was entrusted with the mission to turn an album by Chikada  Haruo into a musical film. Starring real-life musicians Kubota Shingo and Takagi Kan , the movie tells the story of a pair of rivals from the Tokyo band scene who are turned into pop sensations by a shadowy Svengali. But after a fleeting taste of success, they soon discover that, in the words of one song: “Once you reach No. 1, you just go down.”

Starring: Kubota Shingo, Takagi Kan, Togawa Kyōko, Ozaki Kiyohiko
