About Japanese Movie “CUT”
Iranian director Amir Naderi takes the struggle of an aspiring filmmaker to extremes in CUT, his first Japanese-language film. Hidetoshi Nishijima plays Shuji, an obsessive cinephile who relies on his brother’s financial support to fund his film-related activities. When his brother is killed by the yakuza, Shuji must repay his brother’s debt in two weeks, even if it means becoming a human punching bag to raise the money. Co-written by director Shinji Aoyama, Naderi’s violent homage to Japanese cinema is also a tribute to anyone who’s ever sacrificed anything for their passion.
The film received positive reviews in the 2011 Venice Film Festival and was screened four times; it also won the Best Actor and a special mention in the 26th Takasaki Film Festival, as well as the Best Director and Best Actor at the 21st Japanese Professional Movie Awards.
