After premiering last month at the Busan International Film Festival's Asian Film Market, Toei's LINGERING SPIRITS (想いのこし, Omoi no Koshi) will open in Japanese cinemas this Saturday, November 22nd.
Based on the novel Kanojo Tono Jozuna Wakarekata
by Takaya Okamoto, LINGERING SPIRITS is being promoted as a "heart-tugging masterpiece" in the tradition of RESURRECTION (黄泉がえり, Yomigaeri, 2002), BE WITH YOU (いま、会いにゆきます, Ima, Ai ni Yukimasu, 2004) and UNTIL THE BREAK OF DAWN (ツナグ, Tsunagu, 2012). Okamoto co-wrote the screen story and screenplay, while UNTIL THE BREAK OF DAWN director helmed the film.
Masaki Okada (CONFESSIONS, VILLAIN, AKKO-CHAN: THE MOVIE, BEYOND THE MEMORIES, THE APOLOGY KING) stars as Gajirou Honda. Described in publicity materials as "a scumbag", Honda is a self-centered young man who cares nothing but girls and money. His negligence results in a car accident that claims the lives of the driver and passengers... three pole dancers.
