Sakuran (R2) in January
ICA Films have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Sakuran on 12th January 2009 priced at £17.99 RRP. Adapted from the Manga comic series by Moyoco Anno, Sakuran is described as a tour de force of new Japanese film and music talent, offering a lush, sumptuous tale of 18th century Edo-era courtesans, with sassy geishas, illicit affairs, behind the scenes cat fights and all out brawls.
The film stars half-Caucasian, half-Japanese model/rock idol/actress Anna Tsuchiya (Kamikaze Girls) and is directed by acclaimed photographer Mika Ninagawa. You can read more about the film in our review of the Japanese DVD release here.
