"Ten no Chasuke" takes part in the 65th Berlin International Film Festival

Matsuyama Kenichi, Ono Ito and director SABU were in Berlin on 13 Feb for the screening of their movie "Ten no Chasuke" at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival as the film is one of the 19 titles shortlisted for the competition category. Matsuyama plays the role of an angel who is a tea server in heaven and comes down to Earth to save the woman he loves from her destined fate. The fantasy-comedy movie is based on SABU's novel and was shot entirely in Okinawa.

After the screening, Matsuyama commented that he was glad that the audience laughed along at the parts which he also felt was funny while SABU was clearly elated at his film being selected as this is his 8th entry in the film festival to date. Results will be announced on 14 Feb (local time).
