今回は、茉優ちゃんの初長編主演作品、2017 年末公開の「勝手にふるえてろ」。
先日、復習のために3度目鑑賞をしてきましたよー。^o^/

ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー

(あらすじ)
OLのヨシカは、自信が持てない生き下手人間。アンモナイトの化石を抱きしめては、自分も絶滅する側だ、と同調したりしている。
そんな彼女だから恋愛も奥手。恋をしたのは、中学生の頃に同級生“イチ”を視野の端っこにおくだけの片想い、のみ。
なんと24才になった今もその片想いを続けているという。

そんな彼女だが、あるとき会社の同僚の“ニ”に告白される。彼女はそれがとても嬉しかった。それは恋にときめいたからではなく、告白によって自分に自信を持つことが出来たからだった。
そして浮かれもした。
一番好きな“イチ”と、二番手の“ニ”、自分には彼氏が二人いるとさえ思った。

しかしある失敗で命拾いをして、彼女は考えた。
目の前にいるニと、遠い存在のイチ…一度失った命と思えば、一番好きな相手との恋に生きようと!
彼女はイチに再会すべく同窓会を企画する。

ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー

今回もあらすじを自作しました。(汗)
だって某所のがネタバレっぽいんだもの。
(でもこの先自分もネタバレぽいこと書いてるんで、不安な人は切り上げてくださいね!)

重度の自己卑下ヒロインが、妄想と現実の恋に悩む物語です。

映画の前半は、とにかく楽しい!
ヒロインのヨシカは、余暇や通勤で出会う人たちに笑顔で語りかけ、
同僚とのやりとりはギャグだらけ。
映画館内は笑いに包まれます。
(タモリ倶楽部ファンなら3倍笑えますw)

しかし、物語にターニングポイントが訪れて。
劇中歌にのせて、今までの幸せが架空のものであったと知らされます。
(タネ証しされてゆく2分間映像は技術的にも見事です!)

憔悴したヨシカに二や親友の来留美が暖かく手を差しのべるも、彼女は拒んでしまいます。
そして知る、孤独。

銀幕のヨシカとともに、観客も「孤独とは何か」について考えさせられます。
そして、ヨシカがもがくように手にしたスマホが、ファンタジックなメッセージを語り出しー

あーもうこのシーンを思い出すだけでっ、ふっ、ふるえます!
毎回言ってるけど、ファンタジーは正義!
劇中歌も、スマホも、ファンタジー!
でも、キーアイテムの赤い付箋は、ノットファンタジー!

…勝手にふるえてすみません。
とってもコントラストの効いた映画です。
当初予定よりロングラン&広域上映になってますので、ぜひ、ふるえてください!
大九作品だけに、大大大大大大大大大傑作!

AMATA Staff Talk Japanese Film, No. 3 Tremble All You Want

I am tomocarl from the sound section of AMATA K.K. back again, a certified Mayuite (my own idea).
“Mayuite” is a nickname I created for fans of the actress Mayu Matsuoka.
My selection this time is Mayu-chan’s first feature-length production, 2017’s “Tremble All You Want”.
I saw it for the 3rd time the other day just to refresh my memory~. ^o^/

ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー

<Summary>
Office worker Yoshika is someone who, to put it mildly, has no self-confidence and is just kinda bad at life. She even sympathizes with an ammonite fossil at one point, believing she too is on the road to extinction, just like a fossil.
It goes without saying, but she’s also quite a late bloomer when it comes to romance. Her only experience of it was in junior high, when she had a crush on a classmate named Ichi (his name, but also carries the meaning of the number “one” in Japanese).  However, this was only a one-sided crush , and Yoshika was never even a blip on Ichi’s radar.
And even now at 24 years old, she continues to hold that crush dear to her heart.

Then one day, she is confessed to by a co-worker by the name of Ni (whose name also carries the meaning of the number “two” in Japanese).
She was happy beyond words. Not because she was in love with him, but because this event finally allowed her to gain a sense of self-confidence.

She got a bit ahead of herself.
She even entertained a fantasy of having two boyfriends: Her true love, Ichi, and his runner-up, Ni.

After picking herself up again after a certain incident, she had an idea.
Ni, who is close at hand, and Ichi…not wanting to miss out, she decides to try and pursue her true love!
And so, Yoshika begins to plan a school reunion in order to meet up with Ichi.

ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー

I wrote that summary myself. *sweats*
After all, if I mention that part 
then it’ll basically be a spoiler.
(But I do write some spoiler-y stuff later on, so if you would like to avoid them, take the ejector seat right about now!)

So it’s a story about our very self-deprecating heroine, who cannot decide between her love fantasy, and the real one that is before her.

The first half is just a fun romp!
Yoshika talks with the people she meets in her spare time or on her commute with a smile, and her interactions with co-workers are full of laughs. The theater was full of giggles.
(As an added bonus, if you like Tamori Club, you’re bound to laugh about 300% more lol)

However, the story takes a sudden turn.
She learns that all of her happiness was just a lie, all to the tune of song.
(The 2-minute segment where this truth is revealed is also quite appealing on a technical level!)

The now-exhausted Yoshika ends up turning down the help of Ni and her good friend Kurumi. She finds herself alone, and comes to know isolation.

Along with Yoshika on the big screen, we in the audience are made to think about what isolation truly means.
And then, the smartphone she reaches out in struggle, begins to deliver a fantastic message~!

Ah, just recalling this scene, I tr-tremble so!
I’ll say this as many times as I must, but fantasy is AWESOME!
The musical parts, the phone, it’s all fantasy!
But just to be clear, the red post-it note is NOT fantasy!

…Excuse my selfish trembling.
This is a film which does a great job of contrasting scenes with each other.
It received a longer run and wider screening than originally planned, so if you have an opportunity, please go see it and tremble for yourself!
A truly “oh”verwhelming masterpiece from Director Ooku!
