Film sales outfit The Wild Bunch have updated their website with information and pictures from the latest flick by Shinji Aoyama, the Tadanobu Asano starring Eli Eli Lema Sabachthani. Here's the official synopsis:
"My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me? - MATTHEW 27:46
AD 2015. The world's major cities are decimated by a terrible plague, a highly contagious virus that fills those it infects first with unbearable dread, then with overwhelming despair. A fatal disease, without cure. The Lemming Syndrome.
In an isolated country mansion, two musicians - Mizui and Asuhara - live in seclusion, devoting themselves to the creation of pure sound far from the trappings of fame and success they knew in the corrupt and dangerous city. They are visited by an ageing plutocrat, his desperately sick daughter and a detective, who believes that in the music made by Mizui and Asuhara lies the seed of hope that the old man’s daughter can be saved.
In the vast, changeless stillness of nature, the musicians begin to play...
Following the international acclaim that greeted his EUREKA (FIPRESCI and ECUMENICAL Awards, Cannes 2000) ELI, ELI, LEMA SABACHTHANI reunites Aoyama Shinji with producer Sento Takenori and pre-eminent Japanese screen star Asano Tadanobu."
