Lori studies at the university on the beautiful island of Izu, where his uncle lives. One morning, he wakes up on campus with a horrible headache. First he sees a beautiful blue sky, then students gathered around him filming him. Intrigued, he asks them what is going on, but they back away. Finally, he realises that he is naked. Ah, shit... He runs away and once hidden, he notices that instructions have been written on him. Following them, he finds some underwear before going to a huge beach house where he meets the beautiful Chisa. Then he wakes up on campus with a horrible headache, stark naked. Subsequent tests lead to him meeting Atsuhiro. Together they manage to escape the nudist vortex and end up in a scuba-diving club populated by muscular partygoers who force them to get drunk, and pretty, aggressive girls who are not to be messed with. Welcome to Big Blue!
Do you miss those perplexing, “only in Japan”-type comedies with bold, uninhibited, political incorrect humour? GRAND BLUE DREAMING will satisfy your need to laugh out loud with friends at a frantic succession of deliciously absurd situations! Directed and co-written by the prolific Tsutomu Hanabusa (TOKYO REVENGERS, KAKEGURUI 1 & 2) and adapted from a popular gag manga by Kenji Inoue and Kimitake Yoshioka, this hilarious oddity alternates between a nude-dash obstacle course halfway between GROUNDHOG DAY and MEMENTO, and a dance party/beauty contest with violent contestants. Fortunately, there are some soothing underwater sequences that allow us to catch our breath. Leave your judgement behind and dive into the ocean of irreverence of GRAND BLUE DREAMING! – Translation: Rupert Bottenberg
