Wow, 10 years of All About Lily Chou Chou Already?

April 20, 2011 — 11 Comments

Oh hoh… teasing photo for those who wanted Shunji Iwai + Yu Aoi back together. xD

Nihon Eiga was celebrating the 500th movie broadcast/projection, so they decided to run All About Lily Chou Chou… which turns ten years old this year. Yup: Yu-chan debuted ten years ago… Salyu’s been on the market for ten years… and you can feel old now.

Cinema Cafe has a write up of the event and talks briefly about Vampire (teasing), as well as Shunji’s work on New York I Love You.

As you may or not know, Shunji Iwai was born and raised in Sendai, in Miyagi prefecture, so he’s been deeply affected by last month’s Japan tragedy — which made him skip the Hong Kong Film Fest for the screening of Vampire, All About Lily Chou Chou, and April Story.

Also, in other news… the cast members of the film Hula Girls donated 10M Yen (like $100k) to Iwaki, which has been affected by the radioactive crisis.

I think that’s all I’ve got from news…

Here’s a couple pics xD

Is there’s someone who can skim through the Cinema Cafe article for important info?

  1. Nooooooooooooooo… I missed that.
    I dunno how to gauge the interistingness of the article, it tells a bunch of anecdotes about Lili Chouchou’s shooting and summarize recent activities of Iwai-sensei. I can mail you the details if you need it.

  2. Wow felicidades por el décimo aniversario.

  3. Viendo películas, leyendo libros, escuchando buena música, estudiando, trabajando, trantando de responder ¿en qué momento se jodió Big Bang?, juntando un millón de firmas para que Changmin y Yunho dejen de cantar por el bien de la humanidad, rezando para que Horikita Maki protagonice una película de Kore-eda, etc. Ahora poniendome al día con las noticias de tu página, más chismes de Yu Aoi, aprovechando el feriado largo. Sobre la película de Iwai, es genial que se haya formado todo un culto sobre el fenómeno Lily Chou Chou, me hubiera gustado que coloques una entrevista o foto de Shugo Oshinari, porque para mi él sostiene la película, estaré eternamente enamorada de Blue Cat. Ni que se diga de la banda sonora, tantas noches sin sueño escuchando la voz de Salyu y a mi mente el grito silencioso de Hoshino, que más se puede pedir.
    PD: Tengo que esperar hasta el 2018 para celebrar el décimo aniversario de la película de Sion Sono.

  4. I love seeing those two together! It just puts a smile on my face!

    So I guess there’s not going to be a special edition bluray of AALCC for the 10 yr anniversary?…Damn!

    • @Acerk21, I am eagerly waiting for Vampire on DVD. LOL

      I don’t know if it was because I’m looking at Yu’s info, but I was surprised I didn’t see any of the others’ photos. No Hayato Ichihara, no Shugo, no Ayumi Ito.

  5. Speaking of Vampire, I found out that Yu speaks english in the film!!! I can’t wait to finally see it. Any word on a release date?

    • @Acerk21, I saw that! On your IMDb post hahaha.

      No, I only know that Raiou is about to get a DVD release (hopefully the Okada fans would sub that), and that Redline is to be released in… August.

      Btw, I want Yu’s English to be good. I hope it is. I saw an MTV clip of years ago of her introducing the OK Go’s Here We Go MV, and… well, it wasn’t what I was expecting. LOL

    […] don’t remember seeing him in the anniversary pictures [1], but I’m so glad they asked him about it because Yu-chan got a mention by name as well as a […]
