Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: Advertising executive Shunsuke Sakuma (Naohito Fujiki) is at the top of his game. Winning numerous advertising awards, the cool Shunsuke lives a life most men only dream of. He luckily lands a new massive product campaign for Mikado Beer, Japan's largest conglomerate corporation. Working on the project for almost two years with an estimated three-billion Yen invested, the project would "make" Shunsuke. But in its final stages, the project is suddenly dropped by a single man - Katsutoshi Katsuragi (Ryo Ishibashi) the son of the original founder and Vice President of Mikado Beer.
Game or prey?
Money - it’s a game to lure money, make money, live on money and spite coz of money. Does it make the people who have loads of it happy? or more miserable, conniving and scrupulous human being?
I found this movie after searching for more actions that starred Fujiki Naohito and glad that I found a short movie rather than 10 or 11 episodes drama!
Possibly I am to engrossed with his character in Hotaro no Hikari as Bucho that I kept comparing them 2. Obviously in this movie, Nao showed his excellent skill in a totally different role and character altogether. From handling a character as a manager to a creator of creative expensive highly paid advertisements pieces; Nao delivered smoothly in both.
In "Game" - a more darker personality behind the fa?ade of a successful career man. The accomplice with Juri - somehow I found not that convincing and their chemistry too, ermmmm… not great.
so what can I say here is just the situation where those who have money si also the one who have indirect power that can manipulate and change another person’s life. It sucks but that’s the reality.
the ending… not really to my liking but it is a practical one.
happy watching! enjoy… :)
