A GIRL MISSING Info and Photos From Kadokawa
A SCIFI JAPAN EXCLUSIVE
Kadokawa Pictures has provided information and pics for A GIRL MISSING (よこがお, Yokogao), their co-production with the French studio Comme Des Cinemas. The film is a challenging work that tackles the theme of an “innocent assailant”. The original script is by director Fukada Koji, who won the Prix du Jury in the Un Certain Regard program with his 2016 movie HARMONIUM (淵に立つ, Fuchi ni Tatsu) at the 69th Cannes International Film Festival.
Risa (Mariko Tsutsui) specifically requests Kazumichi Yoneda (Sosuke Ikematsu) as her hair stylist. Until six months ago she was working as a home-care nurse with the name of Ichiko, but an incident causes her life to fall apart. To get revenge she tries to get close to Kazumichi using the alias of Risa.
