Scene at the Sea / Kids Return
UK company Third Window Films have announced the release of two more movie classics from the Japanese master-director, Takeshi Kitano (Violent Cop, Fireworks), both remastered using new 2K transfers received directly from Office Kitano.
A Scene at the Sea releases first on September 12th, this time with a fascinating audio commentary by Midnight Eye’s very own Japanese cinema expert, Jasper Sharp. A Scene at the Sea tells the story of a young hearing-impaired couple’s discovery of surfing and their growing love for it. This film is sure to appeal to fans of Kitano’s quieter pieces.
Next up on October 24th is Kids Return, beautifully remastered and featuring a compelling audio commentary by Yale University’s professor of Japanese cinema, Aaron Gerow, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film back in 1996. Highly regarded amongst Kitano aficionados for »
