Trailer: Pale Moon (Kami no Tsuki)

From time to time, I will be posting Japanese film trailers on this blog. Please note that the films for which trailers are featured here may not necessarily be selected films at the Japanese Film Festival. 

Embedded below is the trailer (in Japanese and without English subtitles) for Pale Moon, the new film directed by Daihachi Yoshida (The Krishima Thing – winner of Best Film, Best Director and Best Editing at the 2013 Awards of the Japanese Academy and featured in JFF’s encore screenings earlier this year). It stars Rie Miyazawa (The Twilight Samurai, Kiki’s Delivery Service – JFF 2014), SĂ´suke Ikematsu and Renji Ishibashi.

Synopsis (via Asian Wiki): Rika Umezawa (Rie Miyazawa) lives with her husband, but without any children. She works part-time at a bank. Rika receives favorable evaluations from her clients and boss because of her attentive work. Nevertheless, she feels a sense of emptiness from her husband who doesn't seem interested in her. Rika then falls into an extramarital affair with a younger man named Kota. She also begins to embezzle money from her clients.

Pale Moon is due for release in Japan on the 15th November, 2014.
