First-day-screening of new movie "Otoko no Issho"
The first-day-screening event of new movie "Otoko no Issho" was held at Shinjuku Picadilly on 14 Feb which was attended by cast members Eikura Nana, Toyokawa Etsushi, Mukai Osamu, the director Hiroki Ryuichi and JUJU who is the singer of the theme song "Hold me, Hold you". The movie features Eikura as Tsugumi a woman in her 30s who had been working in Tokyo but decides to move in with her grandmother at the countryside due to some problems with her life but ends up living there together with Kaieda, an university professor in his 50s. Despite her reluctance initially, she slowly begins to fall for him after his aggressive advances.
The movie is due to take part in the 4th Toronto Japanese Film Festival in Canada from 11 June and the 9th JAPAN CUTS festival from 11 July. It will also be shown in Taiwan although the release date is not confirmed yet.
