Kurosawa Creates Worlds In Full REAL Trailer
After four years away from feature films - though he did helm the excellent television miniseries Penance last year - Kurosawa Kiyoshi returns to Japanese screens this summer with scifi drama Real (aka A Perfect Day For Plesiosaur). The first teaser for this one was a surprisingly rapid cut affair but a full theatrical trailer has just arrived and I have more than a passing hunch that this effort captures the tone of the film a little better.

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.
Satoh Takeru, Ayase Haruka, and Joe Odagiri star.

The plot synopsis sounds a little silly and contrived but I'm trusting that Kurosawa has retained the directorial skill that made Pulse so watchable.

I can't believe it's been four years since his last movie, the outstanding 'Tokyo Sonata.' Fingers crossed that this is up to his usual high standard.

I love Kurosawa, though this trailer really pours on the melodramatic music. Hopefully the actual film won't be like that. Kurosawa's movies are usually more Kubrickian in their emotional approach.

I'm totally holding judgement until I see the picture. Let's not forget this is a zany, schmaltzy Japanese trailer for a Japanese film that isn't zany or schmaltzy in nature (I think?).

I remember reading about a movie like this in twitch before..... it was maybe a European movie? The trailer had no dialogue at all.....

I can;t remember the name :|
