一個既無政治經驗,又缺乏魅力的候選人,有了小泉首相和自民黨的背書支持,他能夠打贏這場選戰嗎?這部以真實電影手法拍攝的紀錄片,紀錄了這場在川崎的激烈競選,同時揭露了「民主」的真實本質。

2005年秋天,四十歲的個體戶山內和彥,原本平靜而單調的生活面臨天翻地覆,因為由日本小泉首相帶領的自民黨(LDP)突然決定提名他為川崎市議會補選的候選人。身為政壇菜鳥的山內既沒有個人魅力,又沒有支持者和選民基礎,甚至連準備這場大選的時間都沒有…

Can a candidate with no political experience and no charisma win an election if he is backed by the political giant Prime Minister Koizumi and his Liberal Democratic Party? This cinema-verite documentary closely follows a heated election campaign in Kawasaki, Japan, revealing the true nature of 『democracy.』

In the fall of 2005, 40-year-old, self-employed Kazuhiko 『Yama-san』 Yamauchi’s peaceful, humdrum life was turned upside-down. Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi’s Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) had suddenly chosen him as its official candidate to run for a vacant seat on the Kawasaki city council. Yama-san had zero experience in politics, no charisma, no supporters, no constituency, and no time to prepare for the impending election.

導演的話 Direstor’s Statement

我不會將《完全選舉手冊》視作一部政治作品,政治是另外一回事;我更願意將這部片稱作「觀察電影」,關於一場由過去曾掌權五十年的日本自民黨的競選活動,期望觀眾去察覺並詮釋這個複雜而難以闡明的選舉現實。

大部分的紀錄片工作者會在開拍前對於拍攝主題進行廣泛的研究、寫好詳細的劇本和計畫,其劇本通常是為了說服製作團隊—執行製片、工作人員與出資者—在藝術上和經濟考量上,這部電影都是有趣而值得投資的。

但在製作《完全選舉手冊》時,我打破了這個傳統…

I don’t think of CAMPAIGN (SENKYO) as a political piece, though  politics is its subject matter. Rather, it is what I call 『an  observational film』 in which the viewer is expected to perceive and  interpret the complex, difficult-to-articulate reality of an election  campaign run by the Liberal Democratic Party, the party that has held  power in Japan for the last 50 years.

Most documentary filmmakers conduct extensive research on their  subjects and to write detailed scripts and treatments before they  begin shooting. The scripts are often written to persuade members of  the production team—executive  producers, staff members, and investors—that the movie is interesting and  worth producing, both  artistically and financially.
