Review

Although an old bachelor, Kameoka, is a talented actor, he has only played minor roles. He does not mind how small his role is and continues to act for various films with all his heart. When he is shooting in the countryside, he visits a small bar and falls for Azumi, the owner of the bar. However, he has to leave once the filming is over. He does not tell Azumi what he does for a living, but she eventually finds out. The feelings between the two grow, but Kameoka has to leave for another film shooting in a different area. The Actor depicts fun episodes that happen at a production site and difficult lives of actors. It also shows the heart-warming story of a relationship that develops during the shoot. The good-natured characters in the film let the uncontrollable flow of life proceeds and enjoy the moments that the life offers without giving up. What is especially impressive is the lover-like relationship between Kameoka and Azumi, the two individuals with scars in their hearts, politely share the stages of life while being very careful and considerate not to hurt each other.
