  1. Finally! A movie that was in Japan FIRST! You don’t know how frustrated I am with people who tell me how good Sin City is and how I have to see it. I’ll see it when it comes to Japan in THREE YEARS!

    Anyway, I have trouble believing that you, with access to the Internet, have no idea what this movie is about.

    I haven’t seen it though. For some reason, they don’t think to provide English subtitles for their films here. Huh.

  2. It’s true that I probably could figure out what this movie is about, but I found the site shortly before I left work, so I didn’t have time to try to figure it out. Perhaps I’ll sort it out tomorrow. -)

  3. I just noticed that Yusuke Iseya (Casshern) was also in After Life http://imdb.com/title/tt0165078/

    Too bad I still haven’t been able to find a copy of After Life with English subtitles. It’s as frustrating as finally finding Le Samourai on DVD, but only with French audio and Japanese subtitles. *sigh*

  4. Here’s the plot of Casshern from the IMDb: “In a world with an alternate history, a great war finally comes to an end leaving the earth diseased and polluted. The geneticist Dr. Azuma vies for support from the government for his neo-cell treatment that he claims can rejuvenate the body and regenerate humankind. The government leaders, guarding their own deeply entrenched powers, turn down the professor. Driven to complete his work, Dr. Azuma accepts a secret offer from a sinister faction of the powerful military. After an incident occurs in Dr. Azuma’s lab, a race of mutant humans known as the Shinzo Ningen are unleashed upon the world. Now only the warrior known as Casshern, reincarnated with an invincible body, stands between the Shinzo Ningen and a world on the brink of annihilation.”
