'Chikara - the Sumo Wrestler's Son (2014) - Chikara: sumobryderens søn - short film

Chikara was a sumo wrestler for several years and enjoys the sport, although it may be difficult at times. He is also one most potential sumo wrestlers of his club, having already won tournaments. Chikara's father Harumitsu had a prosperous career as a respected professional sumo wrestler from Tokyo's largest and most successful sumo stable, therefore Chikara has a lot riding on his shoulders. Chikara looks up to his father, but he is also wary of him since he can be harsh whenever it concerns to sumo wrestling. Harumitsu, like most other Japanese parents, works six days a week from early dawn to late at night, thus Chikara spends very little time with him. As a result, sumo is a very special occasion for Chikara and his father. Chikara wishes to please his father and stay true to his high expectations. "The Sumo Wrestler's Son" is a wonderful and touching story about the father-son connection and the pressures of standards, but it's also a universal narrative of a strong youngster who must go through a lot to learn that his dad loves him anyway.
