Completion press conference of movie "Itamu Hito"
The completion press conference of new movie "Itamu Hito" was held on 26 Jan which was attended by the cast members Ishida Yuriko, Koura Kengo, Shiina Kippei, Ootake Shinobu and Kanjiya Shihori as well as the director Tsutsumi Yukihiko. The movie which will be shown in cinemas from 14 Feb, is based on the Naoki Award-winning novel by Tendou Arata which features Koura as Shizuto who embarks on a journey to mourn the dead and Ishida as Yukiyo, a former inmate who had killed her husband and the two happen to meet at the place where the murder had taken place. Yukiyo then follows Shizuto on his journey to discover the meaning of life, death and mourning. When asked about their intimate scene in the movie, Koura said that to sum it up, he only had the word "passion" to describe it while Ishida commented that Koura spoke what she wanted to say so she couldn't find an alternative word for her answer.
