New Trailer for Naoko Ogigami's Latest Film "Rent-a-Cat"

by Marc Saint-Cyr

One of the more accomplished filmmakers in the independent Japanese film scene today is Naoko Ogigami. With such films as "Kamome Diner," "Glasses" and "Toilet," she has developed a personal style distinguished by well-written contemporary characters, light-hearted humanism and a polished visual sensibility. Just a few days ago, the online community got a brand new trailer (included below) for her latest film, "Rent-a-Cat," which screened at the Berlin International Film Festival. The story revolves around Sayoko (Mikako Ichikawa), a lonely young woman who runs a business in which people can rent cats for a time to lighten their lives a little. Living on her own, she doesn't seem to handle connections beyond her feline companions very well, though the re-appearance of a person from her past soon enough shakes up her self-imposed isolation. Judging from the two-minute glimpse we are given, it certainly looks like Ogigami's recognizable charm, humor and sensitive characterizations will carry on strong with this fresh effort.

"Rent-a-Cat" will be released in Japan by Suurkiitos on May 12th. To read more about Ogigami's previous works, check out Eric Evans' profile of the filmmaker here.

I suspect this dilemma could be fixed by flipping a deep setting in Windows eight to adjust how it handles this kind of on-the-fly adjustment ?a which leads us towards the subsequent point.

When compared to Windows 7 Home Premium Product Key, Windows 7 Professional Product Key is outstanding. When will Microsoft ever learn? Keep it simple, attractive, and easy to use. Windows 8 Professional Product Key Most computer users just want the system to work. Windows 7 does this.
Got my old desktop up and running. I got windows 7 because my desktop used to run on Vista (enough said). I did have a little difficulty Office 2013 Professional Plus Product Key but that was just due to my lack of experience with the process; once I got started, Office 2010 Professional Plus Product Key was as easy as just following prompts.

The moral of this obviously is that it's not always as it seems, and am on the verge myself of traveling across the country in a trailer home!
