An official website for Masayuki Suo’s The Terminal Trust has been launched along with a YouTube embed of the film’s new teaser trailer.
As you can tell from the opening frame of the teaser, the big PR draw of this project seems to be the fact that it reunites Koji Yakusho and Tamiyo Kusakari, co-stars of Suo’s blockbuster 1996 film “Shall We Dance?” The pair have not appeared together in anything else until now.
The new film deals with “sanctity of life” concerns vs. the right to be allowed to die. Kusakari plays a doctor named Ayano Orii and Yakusho plays Shinzo Egi, a patient with a serious illness who tells her that when the time comes, he wants her to ease his suffering quickly by not placing him on life support. Tadanobu Asano and Takao Osawa also co-star.
“The Terminal Trust” will be released by Toho in »
