2013 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Real

#22. Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Real

Gist:  His first feature since Tokyo Sonata, which won the Un Certain Regard at Cannes, as well as best picture and script at the Asian Film Awards, Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Real marks a highly-anticipated return to the big screen. Penance (2012) was made for TV.  Real is a science-fiction tale about altered realities and delving into peoples’ consciousness. Kurosawa in an interview said that he knows this is an already much-treaded territory, but he wanted to express this in a way that was surprising and interesting.

Prediction: Having been on the Croisette on four previous occasions Charisma (1999), Kairo (2001), Bright Future (2003) and Tokyo Sonata (2008), this should mark the return of the filmmaker in the Main Comp section.
