Aoi Yu & Abe Sadao to star in new movie "Kanojo ga sono na wo shiranai toritachi"

Aoi Yu and Abe Sadao will be starring in the new movie "Kanojo ga sono na wo shiranai toritachi" (She is one of the birds with an unknown name) based on the popular mystery novel by Numata Mahokaru which will be directed by Shiraishi Kazuya. The story depicts how a self-centred woman Towako (Aoi) is still pining for her ex-boyfriend Kurosaki even after breaking up with him 8 years ago and has the tendency to complain about everything. While wallowing in self-pity, she lives together with a man Jinji (Abe) who is 15 years older than her but is penniless and has no achievements to speak of. One day, when Towako comes to know that Kurosaki has disappeared, this marks a drastic change in her life.

Aoi commented that she finds it difficult to identify with Towako who relies on Jinji to survive but pines for another man deep within. Towako can't seem to give up on things and do something about her life. Despite so, she feels that Towako will be a good test on the viewers themselves to see how much courage they have to assess themselves and dislike their own weak points. On the other hand, Abe who plays the crude pauper Jinji, revealed that he had to try to make himself as dirty and detestable as possible so he discussed with the director how to achieve this during the filming.

The movie will be shown in cinemas this autumn.
