「菅原文太のなれの果て」

久々の試写会です。試写会といえば、タダなので画質(プロジェクターみたいなのを使う会場も多い)を含め安かろう悪かろうみたいな雰囲気に支配されるのであまり良い印象はないのですが、シネコンでの試写会は別です。飲食禁止の会場でバカバカ飲み食いするおばちゃんも気になりませんし(飲食可なので)、座席もしっかりしています。ワーナーマイカル大井の招待券を何故か新橋で100円で手に入れ、試写会へGO!

上映前の前説では、バッテリーという児童書を呼んでいる人が子供から大人まで、多数いました。僕は読んでいないのですが、調べてみると1996年発刊とかなり新しい本だということが分かりました。これでは読んでいるはずがありません。今のところ小学校~高校ぐらいまでの子供と、その親を中心に認知されている児童書のようですが、映画化を期に多くの世代に知られるようになることでしょう。

バッテリーの特徴は、何と言っても子役です。オーディションで選ばれた林遣都、安心感が漂う山田健太、アイスクリームのCMが印象的な米谷真一、演技がたどたどしくてもかなり頑張った鎗田晟裕、実物は抜けるぐらい綺麗な蓮佛美沙子。それに加えて天海祐希、岸谷五朗、菅原文太などのキャストが脇を固めます。原作はベストセラーなので当然、面白くない話ではないので、これだけのキャストを揃えると、面白くなくするほうが至難の業といえるでしょう。

ターン1までの評価「B」

ただ、児童書を映画化するうえでの苦労も伺えます。それは、人物設定の難しさ。実際には、我の強い設定のはずの主人公、原田巧の性格がエピソードによってかなりブレるのが気になりました。さらっと観るだけでは違和感はさほど感じないのですが、よく考えてみると人格が崩壊しているのではないかと思えるぐらい性格がブレます。

バッテリーは、子役達の成長も見所です。主役級のそれぞれが、映画が進むにつれ表情が変わっていくことに驚かされます。特に主役の林遣都。大きな瞳が特徴ですが、これが後半に進めば進むほど、目ヂカラを帯びてきます。キャッチャーの山田健太とともに、投球もほとんどが吹替え無しで出来たというあたりも影響しているのかもしれません。映画の中と同様に撮影でも実際にバッテリーを組んでいることになるのですから。

ターン2までの評価「B」

天海祐希、岸谷五朗、菅原文太、そして監督役の萩原聖人もなかなか良い味を出しています。特に宝塚退団後、なかなか活路を見出せなかった母親役の天海祐希は、ここ数年でキャラクターみたいなものを確立してきたような気がします。時代が後から追いついたような。

ちょこっとネタばれになりますが、この天海祐希の演技が曲者で、一度も見に行かなかった息子の野球の試合に来たときの手の振り方にご注目下さい。北の国からで列車の窓から手を振る緒方直人ばりのお手振りです。ちなみにここは感涙ポイントで、手を振るだけでジーンとするのは、ここに来るまでに積み重ねがあるからです。人を殺して単に悲しませる手法に比べると格段に崇高なテクニックといえます。

最終評価「B」

映画としてパンチはありませんが、親子で安心して観ることが出来る映画です。映像も綺麗で、何だか子供の頃に戻ったような感覚も覚える映画です。幼い頃って、こんなことに夢中になっていたかなあ、と思い出しながら観るのもいいと思います。評価はBですが、必見です。

実は、昨年秋にこの映画の製作報告会に出席しました。折りしもハンカチ王子が話題となり、出演者が自己紹介をしながら青いハンカチを取り出して笑いを誘っていたのが印象的でした。出演者が和やかに自己紹介するなか、トリをつとめた菅原文太の第一声は「菅原文太のなれの果てが、まだ役者をやっております」とやや引き気味の微妙な挨拶でした。彼は、自分の老いを受け入れるのに必死なんだなあ、と思いました。任侠ものやトラック野郎での荒々しい演技は影をひそめていますが、バッテリーを観てもまだまだ出汁は出ていることを確信しました。

ついでに紹介!

いつも最後は無理難題を押し付けられ、プラモデルを駆使しながら仕事をこなすトラック野郎とそのサウンドトラック。ほれた~はれた~が~こうさてん~あ~ああ~ああああ~♪
