Prolific Japanese director Nakamura Yoshihiro (Fish Story
, A Boy and His Samurai
) is about to explore how a social media craze can impact a seemingly routine investigation into a mysterious murder in his upcoming film The Snow White Murder Case
. The film is based on Kanae Minato's (the author of the famous Confessions
) 2012 novel Shiro Yumi Hime Satsujin Jiken
. Starring some of Japan's finest working actors (Tanimura Mitsuki, Inoue Mao, Ayano Go), The Snow White Murder Case
is right now one of the most hyped 2014 films in the country.
Here's a short summary of the interesting plot:
Beautiful Noriko Miki works at a cosmetic company. One day, Noriko is murdered. People begin to suspect her co-worker Miki Jono (Mao Inoue) might have killed her. Television begins to cover her story. A TV show interviews Miki Jono's colleagues, family, people from her hometown. Rumors turn into fear. Is she a wicked a woman?
The trailer gives a glimpse into the intense action, where gruesome violence, social media outbursts, and edge-of-your-seat suspense are the main drives behind the chilling story. If the film is even half as good as the short trailer then I'm definitely sold.
The Snow White Murder Case will have its Japanese premiere on March 29, 2014. Don't miss the video trailer, it's really good!
