Directed by Yuzuru Tachikawa (Japan, 2023, 120 min.). Japanese with English subtitles.
High school student Dai Miyamoto has his life is turned upside down the day he discovers jazz. Picking up a saxophone and leaving his sleepy hometown for the bustling nightclubs of Tokyo, Dai finds that the life of a professional musician isn’t for the faint of heart, as he must confront what it truly means to be great. Director Yuzuru Tachikawa (Mob Psycho 100) brings the award-winning manga brilliantly to life, capturing raw live jazz performances with emotive color and lyrical imagery that immerse viewers in a packed club, breathlessly watching a rising star at the moment of his ascension. Even for those uninitiated to jazz or anime (or both), Blue Giant is a cinematic experience that lingers long after the lights go up.
“Anyone who doesn't have a lump in their throat or a racing heartbeat by the triumphant finale is probably dead.… It is a feast for the eyes, ears and heart.” —Asian Movie Pulse
