A NORMAL LIFE
Chronicle of a sumo wrestlerANormalLife.html

18 years old Takuya gives in to his father’s wishes and enrolls in a sumo school even though he prefers judo. Takuya swaps his trendy clothes for the traditional Japanese kimono and moves to Tokyo. His father has a warning for him as he leaves : « Do you realize there is no place for you if you come back ? »

Coproduced by Japanese TV NHK as part of its « Tokyo Modern Series », granting an exceptional access, this documentary film follows the first 9 months of Takuya’s initiation, telling about the dreams and disenchantments of a teenager who is discovering the reality of the traditional world of sumo.
