As Rei Dan says, "Every scene and cut is shining in every corner of the screen.". It is a wonderful making-of video showing how the cast members and director Mizutani created this work together in a great atmosphere.

◆Trailer◆

The trailer begins with the shocking line "Yayoi symphony orchestra that has continued for 18 years will be officially disbanded." by Riko Hanamura (played by Rei Dan) who initiated the orchestra. Initiator Riko has decided to disband the amateur Yayoi symphony orchestra that has been run for 18 years in a local city and announces that the last concert will be held.
However, the orchestra members with the unique characters take causal actions instead of following rules, causing conflicts among them. Riko is teased.
Can the disintegrated orchestra members become united?
As time goes by, the concert starts.
Although it is supposed to be the last performance, a series of scenes, which make people feel that various things still take place behind the scenes, trigger the orchestra members' expectation for the human drama.
So, will this orchestra embrace the best ending?
At the climax of the trailer, the performance scene where an orchestra member played by Keita Machida and other members are playing instruments is unveiled for the first time.
Almost all of the cast members try instruments for the first time. Therefore, they all practiced over and over again for this work. The instrumental sounds on the concert are all "made by themselves". The performance scene of the orchestra in the big concert hall is just overwhelming!
Be sure to experience the great power brought by the classic masterpiece "Bolero", played with various thoughts, on the big screen of the theater.



■Keita Machida's Comment
I was very happy after being informed of participating in Mizutani's work.
Every time at the shooting site, I would receive director's instructions on acting. Why did I not notice them ahead? Besides frustration, how to digest the instructions in my way became my task. Actually, it brought me a lot of fun.
Keisuke is a trumpet player in the symphony orchestra.
I learned a bit about playing trumpet in my elementary school but it was hard to make a sound. It was a hard time to me.
I believe never will I have a chance to play an instrument with professionals in an instrumental ensemble scene. This is a valuable experience to me.
Unwilling to finish shooting with feelings that I had never experienced before, I made every shooting day unforgettable.
I think that vibe will be delivered by the video. Be sure to check the movie out!
In addition, atmosphere in the work will change as soon as charming guys pick up their instruments. Please pay attention to it.
