The Long Excuse (Blu-ray) (English Subtitled) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Nishikawa Miwa (Director)
| Fujita Kenshin
| Takehara Pistol
Writer-director Nishikawa Miwa (Dear Doctor) adapts her own Naoki Prize-nominated novel Nagai Iiwake for the silver screen in The Long Excuse. True to the director's style, the critically praised drama patiently unfolds a quiet, quirky and piercing story of a man slowly realizing his own nature. The Long Excuse stars Motoki Masahiro (Departures) as a pretentious writer and 40th Japan Academy Prize Best Supporting Actor nominee Takehara Pistol as a plain-spoken driver, two very different men who cope with their wives' deaths in different ways.
Famous novelist Kinugasa Sachio (Motoki Masahiro) treats his wife (Fukatsu Eri) dismissively and is carrying on an affair on the side. While he's meeting with his lover (Kuroki Haru), his wife passes away suddenly in a bus accident. Sachio is rather unmoved by her death, but he vainly puts on a show of grief for the camera. At a meeting of the bereaved, he runs into old classmate Yoichi (Takehara Pistol) whose wife passed away in the same accident. Unlike Sachio, Yoichi is a distressed mess over the loss of his wife, and struggling to take care of their two children on his own. Sachio impulsively offers to babysit while Yoichi, a long-haul truck driver, is away for work. In the curious process, he becomes increasingly attached to Yoichi's family and their roles in each other's lives.
My Tomorrow, Your Yesterday (Blu-ray) (Premium Edition) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Fukushi Sota
| Higashide Masahiro
| Kiyohara Kaya
Love transcends time and space in My Tomorrow, Your Yesterday, based on Takafumi Natasuki's best-selling novel. Helmed by Miki Takahiro, the director of youth romances Yell for the Blue Sky and Blue Spring Ride, the film stars Fukushi Sota (Strobe's Edge) and Komatsu Nana (Drowning Love) as a young couple joined together by fate. Higashide Masahiro ( Death Note Light up the NEW world) also co-stars in the magical and melancholic romance.
20-year-old Kyoto art college student Takatoshi (Fukushi Sota) falls for Akemi (Komatsu Nana) the moment he sees her on the train. Gathering up his courage, he asks to meet her again, and she suddenly bursts into tears. Takatoshi doesn't understand the reason for her tears, but he continues to fall deeper and deeper in love. The two date happily until the day Akemi reveals an unbelievable secret.
This edition comes with a bonus disc.
Rage (2016) (DVD) (Deluxe Edition) (Japan Version) DVD Region 2
| Tsumabuki Satoshi
| Watanabe Ken
| Ayano Go
Following 2010's Villain, director Lee Sang Il once again adapts a best-selling Yoshida Shuichi novel for the silver screen with the critically acclaimed human suspense drama Rage. Garnering 12 nominations at the 40th Japan Academy Prize, the film features the all-star cast of Watanabe Ken (Unforgiven), Miyazaki Aoi (The Great Passage), Moriyama Mirai (Human Trust), Matsuyama Kenichi (Death Note), Ayano Go (The Light Shines Only There), Hirose Suzu (Our Little Sister) and Tsumabuki Satoshi (Villain), who won Best Supporting Actor at the 40th Japan Academy Prize. Similar to Villain, Rage (a.k.a. Ikari) delves into the subject of human nature, illustrating the way trust and suspicion shape relationships.
Rage begins with the murder of a married couple in Tokyo's Hachioji district. Puzzlingly, the killer leaves the word "rage" scrawled in blood at the scene of the crime. A year later, three mysterious men emerge as persons of interest in the case, and one of them may be the suspected killer who has undergone plastic surgery.
In Chiba, Maki Yohei (Watanabe Ken) finds himself distrusting his flighty daughter Aiko's (Miyazaki Aoi) new boyfriend Tetsuya (Matsuyama Kenichi), who recently moved to town. In Tokyo, gay ad agency employee Fujita Yuma (Tsumabuki Satoshi) harbors suspicions about his new lover Onishi Naoto (Ayano Go), a drifter he recently took into his home. And in Okinawa, a high school girl (Hirose Suzu) befriends a lone backpacker (Moriyama Mirai), who is camping out on a deserted outlying island.
This edition comes with a 40-page booklet and two bonus discs of special features including making-of documentary, event footage and visual commentary.
