TIFF 2011: First Stills From Shinya Tsukamoto's KOTOKO

After a trip back to his roots with Tetsuo: The Bullet Man it would appear that Japan's Shinya Tsukamoto is returning to the sort of dark drama that has marked more recent works like Vital.

The story of a single mother who suffers from double vision; caring for her baby is a nerve-wrecking task that eventually leads her to a nervous breakdown. She is suspected of being a child abuser when things get out of control and her baby is taken away.
Anyone worried that a suspected child abuse drama would turn into a two-hankie weepie melodrama in Tsukamoto's hands need only look at the still above to allay those fears. I don't know about child abuse but someone has clearly been abusing Tsukamoto's face. Two more stills lie in the gallery below.
