Sachiko Nakata, the queen of Okinawan comedy, has passed away! This shocking story turned into a film called "Sachiko's Love Story". The newspaper distributed an extra issue. Leading Okinawan stars such as Yoko Gushiken, Gori of Garage Sale, and Namie Amuro made memorial comments. At Sachiko Nakata's live house, many fans flocked to offer flowers. On the other hand, the relatives at the funeral home were shaking with fear. Sachiko's body had gone missing. The ghost of Sachiko, who had appeared because "I can't see the person I want to see, so I can't become a Buddha," runs around Okinawa, disregarding the concerns of her relatives. In the real world, Sachiko has announced her retirement from the stage in 2020, but she is still in good health. She was very happy that her funeral was going to be held in the film and readily agreed to appear in it. As if she was enjoying her own funeral before her death, she is very active in the film. In addition to popular Okinawan talents such as Ai Moko and Ruka Matsuda, Sachiko and other talented performers of Okinawan theatrical performances give a splendid performance. This is a rare opportunity to see a hilarious theatrical battle that will make you want to bow down to the fundamental power of Okinawan theatrical performance.



「なんくるないさぁ」~生きてるかぎり死なないさぁ~

沖縄の喜劇の女王・仲田幸子さんが、亡くなってしまった!というなんともショッキングな設定の物語は、なんと【幸子の恋物語】へと昇華していく。新聞社は号外を配布。具志堅用高や、ガレッジセールのゴリ、安室奈美恵?など、沖縄を代表するスターたちが追悼コメントを発表。仲田幸子のライブハウスには、多くのファンが献花に押し寄せる。一方、葬儀場の親族たちは戦々恐々。なぜなら、幸子さんの遺体が行方不明になってしまったのだ。「会いたい人に会えないから成仏できない」そんな理由で化けて出た幸子さんの幽霊が、親族の心配そっちのけで沖縄中を駆け回る。現実世界では、2020年に舞台からの引退を宣言したものの、まだまだお元気な幸子さん。映画の中でご自身の葬儀が行われることをたいそう喜び出演を快諾。まるで、自らの生前葬を楽しむように、映画の中で元気に大暴れなさっています。出演は、アイモコや松田るかなど沖縄の人気タレントに加え、幸子さんを筆頭とした沖縄芝居の実力者たちが豪華競演。沖縄芝居の底力にひれ伏したくなる、爆笑芝居合戦は貴重です。
