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?
