Photographer turned director Mika Ninagawa turned heads around the world with her 2006 debut feature, the ultra colorful Sakuran.
Ninagawa's debut immediately established her as one of Japan's
brightest visual talents and fans were excited to see what she would do
next. They've had to wait over five years to find out.
Ninagawa returns in 2012 with Helter Skelter,
a film adapted from a popular manga about a young starlet who turns to
ever increasing levels of plastic surgery to maintain her impossible
image. To star Ninagawa has turned to Erika Sawajiri, a young woman
whose dramatic rise and fall from grace - her career crashed
dramatically in 2007 - is a mirror of the her character in the film.
first full trailer for the film has just arrived - following a previous teaser - and, yes, it is clearly
Ninagawa in full effect - the art direction and colorful palette that
made Sakuran stand out so dramatically very much present here as well.
