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.
