YesAsia Editorial Description

With the help Kurojima Ryoro, learn how to worm your way out of any sticky situation by mastering the art of the apology! Screenwriter Kudo Kankuro, director Mizuta Nobuo and star Sadao Abe's third collaboration is a hilarious comedy about an expert who helps clients resolve conflicts – from civil lawsuits to international diplomatic crises – using one single technique: Apologize. Offering amusing, but important insights into the role of apology in Japanese culture (as well as pop culture), The Apology King is a clever, sharply funny film that was also one of the highest grossing local comedies of 2013. In addition to Sadao, The Apology King also features Inoue Mao (My Darling is a Foreigner) as Kurojima's new disciple, Okada Masaki (Confessions) as a tactless client, Takenouchi Yutaka as a hot shot lawyer and Matsuyuki Yasuko (Suspect X) as a celebrity caught in a scandal.

Kurojima Ryoro (Sadao Abe) is the master of apologies, a professional problem solver who can help the clients of "Tokyo Apology Center" get out of any trouble by teaching them the art of apology. Kurojima is no con artist, though. Through a series of cases – from a young woman (Inoue Mao) who unwittingly offended gangsters with her careless driving to two celebrities whose son was arrested for assault to an international crisis that breaks out over an extra on a film set – we see that there's no better way to resolve a situation than a heartfelt apology.

This edition includes making of, interviews, stage events, promotional spots and the making of the music video at the end of the film. Initial press comes with a car sticker, only available while supplies last.
