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