Director Kotaro Tamura of ‘Josee, the Tiger and the Fish’ revealed the difference from the live-action film.
On the afternoon of the 29th, during an online press conference for the closing film of the 25th Busan International Film Festival ‘Josee, the Tiger and the Fish’, Director Kotaro Tamura attended. Programmer Park Sun-young also joined.
Director Kotaro Tamura said, “In the novel, Tsuteo and Josee’s conclusions are not finalized. In live-action movies, as you know, there is an ending. “There is a difference between the ending suggested by the original and the ending suggested by the live-action film.”
In addition, he said, “The live-action film has its own frame. That’s the ending created by director Isshin Inudo and the script. I tried to express a new ending form regardless of that. That’s the biggest difference between animation and live-action movies.”
‘Josee, the Tiger and the Fish’ is a youth melody that contains a love breakup between an ordinary college student Tsuneo, a loved one, a tiger, a fish, and a little special Josee who wants to see the sea. It is based on a short story by Seiko Tanabe. It is well known to domestic fans as a live-action film made by director Isshin Inudo in 2003 with the leading actors Satoshi Tsumabuki, Chizuru Ikewaki, and Juri Ueno.
