Sakura Promo

Sakura, starring Takumi Kitamura, Ryo Yoshizawa, Shinobu Terajima, Masatoshi Nagase and Komatsu Nana will hit Japanese Theaters on November 13. The production released a series of mini-posters on Thursday October 15. The film was screened at the Japannual Festival in Austria, here’s an excerpt from a review by Asian Movie Pulse:

‘Sleepless nights, warmth, and magic spells are the essence of a film that gives space to its three main protagonists (…) the true power of the actors comes across. Ryo Yoshizawa (“River’s Edge” 2018) portrays a roguish Hajime and outplays his somewhat softened-down brother Kaoru, played by Takumi Kitamura (“Tremble All You Want” 2017). His role as the narrator gives him a neutral virtue that is matched by the acting of Nana Komatsu (“Farewell Song” 2019) in the role of Miki. Both show numbness in their behaviour that mirrors the feelings of puberty and sexual awakening. Since they are the younger ones, the movie equips them with uncertainty and doubt.’
