Abe Hiroshi & Amami Yuki starring in new movie "Koisaika Miyamoto"

The filming set of new movie "Koisaika Miyamoto" directed by Yukawa Kazuhiko which will be shown in cinemas next year, was recently opened to the media. The movie is based on the novel titled "Family Restaurant" by Shigematsu Kiyoshi. Abe Hiroshi and Amami Yuki play a married couple in their 50s who are on the verge of divorce. This is the first time they are playing a married couple after having worked together twice previously playing lovers and an engaged couple. As such, Amami jokingly commented that they finally became a married couple after so many years.

On that day's filming, there was an intimate scene when Amami had to take the initiative to pounce onto Abe. Amami praised her co-star for being able to withstand her weight (she is 1.71m tall) using his stomach muscles and that he's very dependable due to his big build (he is 1.89m tall). Abe commented that working on this film felt as if he was in an action film because there were scenes when he had to be subjected to "physical abuse" such as forced to turn his neck many times. Yukawa praised his lead actors for making the story more believable and that they are at the right age now to show the reality facing the couple in the movie.
