Tsumabuki Satoshi & Mitsushima Hikari to work together in new movie "Guko Roku"

Tsumabuki Satoshi and Mitsushima Hikari will be working together in the new movie "Guko Roku" (The record of folly) adapted from the same-titled novel by Nukui Tokuro which was one of the nominees for the 135th Naoki Award. The film which is due to be shown in cinemas next year, features Tsumabuki as Tanaka, a reporter for a weekly magazine who is investigating the unresolved murder case of a family of three one year after it happened. Through the course of his investigation, Tanaka discovers that the perfect couple image projected by the deceased elite salaryman and his wife was merely an illusion and gradually finds out the truth behind the murders. Mitsushima plays his younger sister Hikaruko.

Tsumabuki commented that he has worked with Mitsushima many times to date and is very impressed with her level of involvement and concentration in her acting thus is looking forward to producing a good movie with her. Meanwhile, Mitsushima said that although she didn't take up the character because she liked it, she was keen to show how Hikaruko's way of loving was affected by her circumstances and hopes to show a different side of her acting this time. In addition, she felt assured by Tsumabuki's presence in the cast as she regards him as her elder brother thus is looking forward to taking up this new challenge with him.
