OKKO'S INN | 若おかみは小学生!

A FILM BY KITARO KOSAKA

JAPAN, 2018 / 94mins / PG

After losing her parents in a car accident, Okko goes to live in the countryside with her grandmother, who runs a traditional Japanese inn built on top of an ancient spring said to have healing waters. While she goes about her chores and prepares to become the inn’s next caretaker, Okko discovers there are spirits who live there that only she can see – not scary ones, but welcoming ghosts who keep her company, play games and help her navigate her new environment. The inn’s motto is that it welcomes all and will reject none, and this is soon put to the test as a string of new guests challenge Okko’s ability to be a gracious host. But ultimately Okko discovers that dedicating herself to others becomes the key to taking care of herself.

The latest feature from famed anime studio Madhouse and director Kitaro Kosaka, who was a key animator on numerous classic films at the venerable Studio Ghibli, seamlessly blends immersive, idyllic landscapes with the storybook charm of Okko’s beloved ghosts. Okko’s Inn delivers a rare ghost story that –despite several floating characters – is firmly grounded in the trials and joys of humanity.

小学6年のおっこ(織子おりこ)は、両親と車に乗っていて事故に巻まき込まれ、1人だけ生き残る。引き取ってくれた祖母が経営する花の湯温泉の旅館「春の屋」で、若おかみとして修業することに。ユーレイのウリ坊ぼうや美陽みよ、子鬼こおにの鈴鬼すずきら、おっこにしか見えない不思議ふしぎな仲間なかまたちと出会い、仲良くなる。鈴鬼が呼び寄よよせるクセのある客たちをもてなす中、おっこは失敗を重ねながらも、若おかみとして少しずつ成長していく。

主人公・おっこ(関織子)役に小林星蘭、ユーレイのウリ坊(立売誠)役に松田颯水、おっこのライバルである秋野真月役を水樹奈々が担当する。監督は『茄子 アンダルシアの夏』(03)から約15年ぶりの劇場公開作品となる高坂希太郎が務める。
