Japan Hits DVD:  Accuracy Of Death and Still Walking

24 November 2008 6:43 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Good news for fans of Japanese film as a couple big titles are getting the English-friendly treatment.

First up, Accuracy of Death - the Takeshi Kaneshiro starring remake of Death Takes A Holiday, later remade in Hollywood as Meet Joe Black - has arrived with minimal fanfare and even less advance notice on English subtitled DVD in Hong Kong.  This one just popped up as available today with no advance warning whatsoever.  The film won a lot of love on the festival circuit so Kaneshiro fans will want to take a look.

Up next is Still Walking, the latest from acclaimed director Hirokazu Kore-EdaHiroshi Abe stars in this one and after a foray into lighter territory with Hana, this looks to be a return to the more serious fare where Kore-Eda made his name, as he returns to themes of life and death.  This one gets a subtitled release »

Accuracy Of Death on English Subtitled DVD

24 November 2008 12:52 AM, PST | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Actor Takeshi Kaneshiro returns to Japanese Cinema for his first Japanese film in six years - Sweet Rain (a.k.a. Accuracy of Death). Kaneshiro plays the God of Death, walking between the worlds of the bustling living and the ethereal dead. Based on Isaka Kotaro's best-selling novel, Sweet Rain may be the latest death god feature to appear, but this is no 'Death Note' clone. Co-starring Konishi Manami (Angel's Egg), Mitsuishi Ken (Megane), and Fuji Sumiko (Hula Girls), Accuracy of Death explores the value of life and inevitability of death through three seemingly separate lives, and the lonely death God who connects them together. »
