The Fish Tale
Director Shuichi Okita (Mori, The Artist’s Habitat, JC2018) paints a whimsical portrait of very real celebrity fish expert Masayuki Miyazawa (called Meebo in the film). The Fish Tale follows Meebo’s ichthyological obsession from the rough waters of their initial years as an outcast to a rising tide of friends, family and celebrity. Inspirationally, actress Non is cast in the lead male role, and her outsider energy enchants every frame of the film. Quickly, heartfelt and oddball, Non delivers a joyous performance that makes it impossible not to get caught in the net of Meebo’s fish fixation.
