Kurosawa's A PERFECT DAY FOR PLESIOSAUR Retitled REAL, Set For June Release
Fans of Kurosawa Kiyoshi, take note. The acclaimed Japanese director's next has landed itself a far more straightforward international title - switching from the cumbersome A Perfect Day For Plesiosaur to Real - and a June 1, 2013 release date in Japan.

Koichi and Atsumi are lovers who have known each other all their lives. A year ago, however, a suicide attempt by Atsumi left her in a coma. Through 'sensing', a type of neurosurgical procedure allowing contact with the intentional aspect of a comatose patient's mind, Koishi tries to find out why Atsumi tried to kill herself, and to bring her back to consciousness. He enters her subconscious, and is told to find a picture of a plesiosaur she drew when she was a child. It turns out that a childhood incident buries in their past will bring their minds together.
Kurosawa returned to screens following a four year absence with 2012 TV project Penance and this is his first true theatrical project since 2008's Tokyo Sonata. Satoh Takeru, Ayase Haruka and Joe Odagiri star.

when you say Kurosawa, there's only one, and that's Akira Kurosawa. If it's someone else, must use full name. There.

I think everyone knows by now that Akira has passed on, so there can be no new films coming out from him.

I know that :(

The original title was beautiful and literary and this one is meaningless and anonymous. Smooth move. Still can't wait to see this, though.
