The movie was initially scheduled for a nationwide release on April 24 but the pandemic and the ensuing state of emergency led the production to postpone everything.
News from the Official Film Site: people who previously bought tickets are informed they will be valid for the August release. Also, Suda Masaki and Komatsu Nana both commented on the crisis and the changes it brought to everyone, hoping the release of the movie would help people to connect and find a way to normal life. Here is a collection of HQ stills from the film and the ‘making of’ to celebrate.
In 2016, actress and model Komatsu Nana starred in Spoiled Innocence, a new clip by popular Taiwanese singer songwriter Yoga Lin. The official music video was released on YouTube by HIM International Music on June 16 then a short making of documentary became available soon after on July 5.
Spoiled Innocence is the short-lived romance between a young woman and the owner of a food stall lost somewhere on a harbour. You can check the lyrics there: In My Melody (Chinese and English)
My Tomorrow, Your Yesterday (English title) aka Tomorrow I Will Date With Yesterday’s You (ぼくは明日, 昨日のきみとデートする) hit Japanese theaters on December 17, 2016. Director Takahiro Miki‘s 10th feature film got good reviews and a positive response from audiences well beyond Japan in the months that followed its release.
“Sota Fukushi, Nana Komatsu in surprisingly profound romantic fantasy (…) My Tomorrow, Your Yesterday alludes to much larger themes of time, memory, love and loss, as well as the impermanence of existence and interactions with the world around us and its inhabitants. At its heart, the film also mourns our loss of innocence and the inexplicable heartbreaks that have scarred most people.” from South China Morning Post.
