First of all ...
That's Yusaku, Miyuki & little Ryuhei :D
Finally watched Kanikosen :D
Even if it's serious story I had some good laughs probably due to typical SABU humor xD
And if we talk about acting, oh well, a long time ago I stopped trying to be objective with Ryuhei but the good thing that he is always awesome so me being biased and subjective doesn't matter ;p Aside him there is my latest fangirl obsession, Kengo Kora (of who I plan to do a picspam soon) & the always great Hirofumi Arai, which I was so pleased to see working again with Ryuhei .
Btw, as curiosity, I was very amused that SABU was able to make the actors run, as always, inside a boat XD
Also I suck at reviews but here at midnight eye review on the film & a interview to SABU about this film part 01 & 02 from which I want to extract this...
Shinjo, the leader of the workers on the cannery boat, is played by Matsuda Ryuhei, so did you see him as carrying on the legacy of his father Matsuda Yusaku?
SABU: That's exactly right. When I met him, he was the spitting image of Matsuda Yusaku. I was moved (laughs). Matsuda Yusaku had an aura of madness to him, but in terms of portraying that in a role I'd say Matsuda Ryuhei has probably surpassed him already. He has his own unique presence, and at the same time he's also a capable actor.
Still bothers me that after 10 years of career he still gets compared to his dad but I suppose that would never change... Even so, read that made me happy :DD
