Radio Televisión Española (RTS) has released a first, beautiful haunting trailer (NSFW because of some metro sex and nyotaimori shots) for Isabel Coixet’s (My Life without Me, Elegy) “romantic and sentimental thriller” Map of the Sounds of Tokyo.
It tells the story of the fragile woman Ryu (Rinko Kikuchi) who does night shifts at a fish market in Tokyo but sometimes also operates as an hit-woman. She’s hired to kill the Spanish wine dealer David (Sergi López) who’s supposed to be responsible for the suicide of the daughter of a Japanese businessman. The whole story is observed by far from a sound engineer who’s obsessed with Ryu.
Map of the Sounds of Tokyo will open in Spanish theaters on August 28, 2009.
[13.05.09] Update: Replaced the trailer with the Japanese version.
