リアル 〜完全なる首長竜の日〜 리얼～완전한 수장룡의 날～ 完美的蛇頸龍之日
One year ago, Atsumi apparently tried to commit suicide, and has been in a coma since then. Through ‘sensing’, a type of neurological treatment allowing communication with a comatose patient, Koichi tries to find out why she tried to kill herself, and to encourage her to wake up. Afraid of what he may find by going into her unconscious this way, but desperate to help bring her around and encouraged by her doctor, who says Koichi is vital to this happening, he undertakes the ‘sensing’. Koichi explains to Atsumi that, depressed over her work as a manga artist, she tried to kill herself, that she has been in a coma for a year, and it is through sensing that they are having this conversation. He asks her why she attempted suicide, but she answers only that she wants him to find the plesiosaur picture.
The Lightning Tree
雷桜 라이오우 雷櫻
The Edo Period, the world of the samurai. The youth Narimichi, the son of a Shogun, who has thus always lived a very restricted life, and the wild girl Yu, spirited away from her mountain village as a baby and raised living free in the mountains. These two, whose circumstances are such that they should never meet, come together before the miraculous ‘lightning tree’, and embark upon a doomed love affair. Knowing they will never be together, they seek all the more to go deep into each other’s hearts. Since neither has ever been in love before, their encounter with it brings spiritual growth. For those of the modern age, far more free than that in which Narimichi and Yu lived, the film will express the value and wonder of love from the heart, without fear of being hurt. This is the story of a miracle of love, between two people who should never have met.
