Completion press conference of movie "Haru wo Seotte"
The completion press conference of movie "Haru wo Seotte" was held on 13 March which was attended by the cast members Matsuyama Kenichi, Aoi Yu, Toyokawa Etsushi, Dan Fumi, Arai Hirofumi and the director Kimura Daisaku. The movie which will be shown in cinemas from 14 June, talks about the bond between father and son set in the background of the Tateyama mountain range in Toyoma Prefecture at 3,000 metres above sea level. Due to the tough conditions such as having to climb to the filming set, Matsuyama commented that it was really cold and his knees felt as if they were about to give way. However, being able to shoot at the mountain range also made the movie more realistic so he felt that it was worth the hardship after all. The male cast also praised Aoi for being able to climb the mountain as well as the men which led her to reveal that she was nicknamed "Masaru" (another reading for the kanji "yu" which is used as a male name) by them.
