Kakekomi (Blu-ray) (Limited Edition) (English Subtitled) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region A
| Toda Erika
| Harada Masato (Director)
| Fuuki Harumi
Back in the Edo period, the divorce rate was actually twice as high as it is now in Japan. Women who wanted to end their marriages would run off to one particular place: Tokei-ji, a Buddhist temple in Kamakura that provided refuge and assistance to abused women. Those who stayed at Tokei-ji for two to three years would be able to officially divorce. As such, Tokei-ji became known as Kakekomi-dera, a temple that sheltered women. Directed by Harada Masato (Chronicle of My Mother) and based on a novel by Inoue Hisashi, Kakekomi brings together an all-star cast to tell the different stories of Tokei-ji with a brisk and entertaining blend of drama, comedy, action and romance.
Oizumi Yo stars as doctor and aspiring writer Nakamura Nobujiro who comes to meet many of the women staying at the temple. He tries to come up with ways for the kakekomi – including an iron worker (Toda Erika) tired of her no-good husband, a merchant's concubine (Mitsushima Hikari) and a woman (Uchiyama Rina) who was forced into marriage by her enemy – to start new lives, but in the process he also finds himself possibly falling for them. The tranquility of the temple is also constantly disrupted by outside forces, from local officials to angry husbands, who won't leave the women be.
This edition includes a bonus DVD and a 16-page booklet.
Our Little Sister (Blu-ray) (Special Edition) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region A
Kore-eda Hirokazu (Director)
| Nagasawa Masami
| Ayase Haruka
Screened in competition at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, renowned filmmaker Kore-eda Hirokazu's latest film Our Little Sister is based on the award-winning manga Umimachi Diary by Yoshida Akimi. The film depicts the lives of three sisters in the seaside city of Kamakura and the changes they undergo when they take in their 13-year-old half-sister after meeting her for the first time at their estranged father's funeral.
Two of Japan's most popular actresses, Ayase Haruka and Nagasawa Masami share screen for the first time as the eldest sister, a level-headed nurse who heads the household, and the second sister, an easygoing bank clerk who makes bad relationship choices, while Kaho (Blindly in Love) plays the 19-year-old third sister and young rising star Hirose Suzu their little half-sister. Besides the four actresses at the center of the story, the film's impressive supporting cast also includes Otake Shinobu as the matriarch of the family, Tsutsumi Shinichi, Kase Ryo, Lily Franky (Like Father, Like Son), Kiki Kirin (Still Walking), Suzuki Ryohei (Tokyo Tribe), Fubuki Jun (Like Father, Like Son) and Maeda Oshiro (I Wish).
This edition includes a bonus DVD and booklet.
Ryuzo and the Seven Henchmen (Blu-ray) (Special Edition) (English Subtitled) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
Kitano Takeshi (Director)
| Fuji Tatsuya
| Manda Hisako
| Kondo Masaomi
The "Jiji" takes on the young'uns in Ryuzo and the Seven Henchmen, a new kind of gangster comedy from director Kitano Takeshi. The legendary Fuji Tatsuya – star of numerous gangster films in the 60s – is back in the spotlight as Ryuzo, a retired yakuza boss living out a peaceful (and incredibly boring) life at home with his son. One day, Ryuzo almost falls victim to a phone scam and vows to take revenge on the scammers. However, Ryuzo discovers that the members of his old gang have all become pensioners with little remnants of their glorious criminal pasts. With a bit of ingenuity and strong fighting spirit, Ryuzo and his men take on the young ruthless gang that tried to wrong him. Taking a light change of pace following his intense Outrage films, Kitano has created a laugh-out-loud comedy that reflects his own aging sensibilities and offers a clever twist on a familiar film genre.
This edition includes making of, stage events, television special and trailers. It also comes with a booklet with staff interview.
