Synopsis

Set in Hokkaido, Kazumi is the lead soprano in her high school’s chorus who is quite proud of her voice. When her secret crush, the Student Council chair, Makimura shows her a photo, she is seized with shock. Rather than the image of her singing with a silly face, it was his comment“, you look like a salmon laying eggs”that left her in despair. She decides to quit the chorus. But when she hooks up with Gondo and the Yunokawa Academy High chorus he led, and experiences their passion in music despite their delinquent exterior, she acquires a deeper understanding of herself. High school dramas are popular long-running items in Japan including the latest hit, Swing Girls and Linda, Linda, Linda and Hula Girls which all present high school girls as their main characters. Director, Tanaka Makoto’s Sing, Salmon, Sing! too follows this path, but if Swing Girls deals with a girls’high school jazz band and Hula Girls with a hula dance group in a mining town during the 1960s, this film moves the stage to a high school choral competition. Kazumi is played by upcoming star, Kaho who is actually an 18 year old who is in high school herself. She became familiar to the Korean audience with her role as an innocent country girl in Yamashita Nobuhiro’s A Gentle Breeze in the Village. In Sing, Salmon, Sing! she gives a superb performance as a prim, perfectionist teenager. (Chung Woochung)
