Charisma met Charisma

What was once just a piece of fiction in a movie (Ito aka Tapestry) has become reality. Through their respective agencies, actor and musician Masaki Suda (Top Coat) and actress and model Nana Komatsu (Stardust Promotion) have announced their marriage.

In a joint communiqué the two young stars said they were grateful to all those who supported them and wished the same people will welcome and care about them as a couple. Stating they are still young (未熟な二人, immature? very young) they both say they are just like when they met and are happy and hopeful making a family and continuing working…

Celebrities, fellow thespians, film directors, mangaka, fashion magazines, movie accounts, cinema magazines and fans around the world congratulate the two for their marriage, here is a non exhaustive list: singer songwriter Aimyon, actors Go Ayano and Takeru Satoh, directors Takahiro Miki and Edmund Yeo, Nana Komatsu’s long time friend and model Emma, editorialists from Elle Japan, Vogue Japan, Frau, Aera, Ginza, Marie Claire Taiwan … as well as Japanese national TVs (NHK, Asahi TV…) and film distributor Gaga Corporation. Actress Fumi Nikaido who worked with Nana Komatsu in two movies (The World of Kanako, Ito/Tapestry) and has close ties with Masaki Suda’s family said: ‘Two people whom I love have become a family. Congratulations!’

Parasites on Friday

The latest promotional activities for Parasite in Love, the new movie from director Kensaku Kakimoto: new extended trailer, special interview article on Cinra.net, film stills (outtakes), other interviews, TV appearances etc… Now it’s just 2 days to go before the nationwide theatrical release on Friday 12.

The Cinra.net interview with director Kakimoto and his two leads, i.e. Nana Komatsu and Kento Hayashi, is quite remarkable. It’s a long one but really worth reading, an in-depth take on their thoughts about solitude, the anxieties the covid crisis brought about, the status of minorities, the way the actors faced challenging roles… you will find below a translation of short selected excerpts.

I made ‘Parasite in Love’, which is not a common love story, but a film about two people who can’t lead a normal social life. (Kensaku Kakimoto)
