Hit Me Anyone One More Time
An all-new film by the popular screenwriter, producer and film director Koki Mitani, master of laughter and emotion. His 8th full length feature film is set in the world of politics! Prime Minister Keisuke Kuroda is widely despised by his people and his approval ratings are the lowest in the history of Japan. One day while delivering a speech, a rock is hurled at him and knocks him unconscious. When he comes to the next day, his memory is lost and he is transformed from a ruthless, money and power-hungry politician to a simple, honest and very ordinary “old guy.” To avoid a national crisis, his mental state is kept secret from the people, his cabinet and even his family. With the help of his inner cadre –his private secretaries – Keisuke somehow manages to keep the government running. Eventually, he is liberated of all restraints and confronts the needs of Japan with a newfound earnestness and a true desire to change the nation…
