Elvis, the life of Elvis Presley, known as the “King of Rock,” features his complex background, musical roots, and the infamous Elvis-starred manager Tom Parker (Tom Hanks). A masterpiece that depicts Elvis’s life until his death at the age of 42, such as his relationship with his wife Priscilla Presley, with vivid visual beauty and a spectacular live performance. By watching this work, you can see the person named Elvis Presley, his extraordinary humanity, and how that unique music was born.
“I’m really honored to be in Japan, where Elvis was dreaming of a performance,” said Baz Luhrmann, who directed the film. Austin Butler, who performed so overwhelmingly, said, “Unfortunately Elvis couldn’t come to Japan, so we’re honored to be here. And for me. This is my first visit to Japan. I am really grateful to all the Japanese fans for their warm welcome. Please enjoy the movie. “
From here, I would like to introduce the impressions of the guests who have just watched “Elvis”.
“Because Baz Luhrmann’s work always has an artistic beauty, I was excited before I saw what kind of work it was. It was actually drawn with a world view beyond my imagination. From the beginning, the music and the images were overwhelming, and I was excited to say, “Wow, a fashionable movie!” I was particularly interested in the scene where Elvis from a young age gathered with his friends on Beer Street. I think everyone was fashionable and enjoyed the music from the bottom of their hearts as it was at that time. I felt like I was slipping back in time when I was watching. I think this work, which you can feel and get a lot of inspiration just by watching it, will be enjoyed by people of all ages! “
