ANNOUNCEMENT: "1,000,000 Yen Girl" at Montreal Film Festival

by Chris MaGee

Well, yesterday we had word that Kiyoshi Kurosawa's "Tokyo Sonata" was going to be getting its North American premiere at this year's Toronto International Film Festival. Now has word that Yuki Tanada's film "1,000,000 Yen Girl" will be getting its international premiere at this year's Montreal Film Festival.

We did a write up about the film that stars Yû Aoi as a young woman saddled with a criminal recourd who works odd jobs to save ¥1 million back at the end of May, so it's really great to hear that what sounds like a really compelling film will be premiering right here in our own back yard!
