Set in the 60s, aspiring director Kenji's dreams quite literally materialise when his favourite film character Princess Miyuki (Haruka Ayase) magically steps off the screen one night, all in monochrome.
Just like her onscreen persona, real-life Miyuki proves to be a feisty character, bossing Kenji around to his absolute delight as he introduces her to the beauty of a world in colour. Does their romance have a future?
Tears and laughter abound in this charming love letter to classic cinema; Takeuchi’s follow-up to his hugely successful Thermae Romae franchise. Make sure you look out for the staggering number of chic costume changes!
