Across a Gold Prairie (金髪の草原 Kinpatsu no sougen) is a 2000 Japanese film based on a Yumiko Oshima manga and directed by Isshin Inudou.


Ayumu Nippori wakes up one day believing himself to be 20 years old again even though he's in his 80s. On that same day he's assigned a new 18-year-old helper named Narisa Kodai (Chizuru Ikewaki) whom he immediately falls in love with, believing her to be a similar age to himself. Eventually she begins to admire the old man, and the two share a close relationship - much to the chagrin of her family. Throughout the film the old man is played by Yusuke Iseya to represent his delusion of being young.
