Among the numerous features (about 4 hours of footage) included in the Premium bluray edition of The Last Ten Years, the making of documentary stands out. The Diary of The Last Ten Years is a 59′ long report which presents the filming of key scenes as well as short interviews. The focus is on Komatsu Nana, Sakaguchi Kentaro and director Michihito Fujii, yet you have sequences with all the members of the remarkable supporting cast: Yuki Yamada, Nao, Haru Kuroki, Tetsushi Tanaka, Hideko Hara, Yutaka Matsushige, Lily Franky…
Director Michihito Fujii‘s latest opus The Last Ten Years reached Japanese theaters just a couple of months ago on March 4, yet it will be released on DVD and Bluray on July 22 and available on digital format as soon as June 24 ! Usually, it takes about 6 months (sometimes more) for films to be released on physical disc formats but surely Warner Japan wants to build on the momentum of the movie’s remarkable success.
