Katsuhito Ishii's "Sorasoi" gets a full trailer

by Chris MaGee

In September we told you about a new film from "The Taste of Tea" and "Funky Forest" director Katsuhito Ishii titled "Sorasoi". Filmed in Japan it tells the story of a girl on the run who joins the young men and women of a beach front dance academy to rehearse for an upcoming competition. Now the ever watchful eyes of Kevin Ouellette over at Nippon Cinema has posted the full trailer for the film and it looks quite good. Billed as a "new style of Japanese comedy with cute romance and dance" it certainly looks like a further evolution from Ishii's last film, the Hiroshi Shimizu remake "Yama no Anata". Will it resonate with his fans though, especially those who love the zany, surreal feel of his earlier films? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Check out the trailer for Ishii's "Sorasoi" here.
