A romantic, heartbreaking love story blossoms…
An aspiring, young director Kenji (Kentaro Sakaguchi) meets a beautiful woman at his favorite movie theater. To his amazement, it’s his matinee idol, Princess Miyuki (Haruka Ayase) who has emerged from the silver screen. Miyuki has only ever known a world of black & white, but with Kenji, she experiences a world full of color. The two begin to fall in love…but the princess hides a secret…
The heroine Miyuki is played by Haruka Ayase, winner of the Best Leading Actress Award at the 39th Japan Academy Awards for her role in “Our Little Sister.” The aspiring director who falls in love with Miyuki is played by Kentaro Sakaguchi, the critically acclaimed actor of “No Longer Heroine” and winner of the Best New Actor Award at the 40th Japan Academy Awards for his role in “Rokuyon Parts I & II.” Bringing the charismatic couple to life on the big screen is Hideki Takeuchi, director of the “NODAME CANTABILE” series and many other hit dramas.
“I want to see you.”
This simple emotion creates a miracle, and a heartbreakingly romantic love story unfolds.
From the production staff of “Thermae Romae”
An original, romantic love story that promises laughter and tears!
1960. Set in a time when movies were still the most popular form of entertainment, “Color Me True” is a magical love story of an aspiring director who meets a princess and the girl of his dreams when she jumps off the screen of an old black & white movie.
The kind, young man is caught up in a whirlwind, catering to the whims of the beautiful monochrome princess who is, in fact, quite a tomboy. Gradually, the two are drawn to one another.
“Why did she appear?” As the story unfolds, the destinies of a real life princess whose life was devoid of color and a young man who can love no one else will break your heart. The romantic film is full of laughter, tears, magic and brilliant visual effects.
Director Hideki Takeuchi of the “Thermae Romae” (2012, 2014) and “NODAME CANTABILE” (2009, 2010) series is known for his comedic style. The production company Film Makers has produced the artistic “The Great Passage” (2013) and “THE VANCOUVER ASAHI” (2014) as well as mega-blockbusters such as “Thermae Romae.” They now bring you an original, emotional love story unlike the manga adaptations which dominate the screen today.
