Anime fans! Get ready for something slightly different. Anime Limited are bringing Pompo the Cinephile to various cinemas from June 29th. The debut feature film by the new animation studio CLAP, Pompo the Cinephile follows Gene Fini, an assistant at the acclaimed Peterson Films in the heart of the glitz and glamour of Nyallywood. His eyes may be dull but his passion for films is unrivalled, but when the pint-sized producing prodigy Joelle Davidovich “Pompo” Pomponette tasks him with directing MEISTER, his very first feature, Gene will learn that it takes a family to make a film.
With a charming cast of characters ranging from the infectious enthusiasm of Pompo, the youthful hopefulness of aspiring actress Nathalie Woodward, and the charms of Martin Braddock – an affectionate homage to screen legend Marlon Brando – this filmmaking family is sure to ignite the creative fires of anyone working, or with an interest, in film.
Pompo the Cinephile will be shown at selected cinemas in Japanese with English subtitles from Wednesday 29th June 2022. There will also be an English-language dub shown from Thursday 30th June 2022.
Check out the trailer below:
Want to know more? Here is the film’s official synopsis!
Pompo is a talented and gutsy producer in “Nyallywood,” the movie-making capital of the world. Although she’s known for B-movies, one day Pompo tells her movie-loving but apprehensive assistant Gene that he will direct her next script: a delicate drama about a tormented artistic genius, starring the legendary and Brando-esque actor Martin Braddock, and a young actress seeking her first break. But when the production heads towards chaos, can Gene rise to Pompo’s challenge, and succeed as a first-time director?
Directed by veteran animator Takayuki Hirao and produced by brand-new animation studio CLAP, Pompo the Cinephile is a rollicking, exuberant ode to the power of the movies, and the joys and heartbreak of the creative process, as a new director and his team devote their lives to the pursuit of a “masterpiece.”
