'Tokyo Sonata' eyes Cannes 2008, Kiyoshi Kurosawa's

Tokyo Sonata, the latest from director Kiyoshi Kurosawa, is said to be a departure from his horror material and will likely follow the path of his film Bright Future, which many believe is his strongest work.

Teruyuki Kagawa (of Sukiyaki Western Django) and Kyoko Koizumi (of Survive Style 5+) star as husband and wife in a film which examines the dark side of human nature and the social problems within.

Before production, Kurosawa had this to say about his latest production:

"This film will potray a very ordinary family in modren Japan. I start from a point where lies, suspicion and a complete breakdown of communication already have established themselves within the family."

Shooting of Tokyo Sonata is set to be completed by the end of December with Kurosawa hoping to have the film ready for a Cannes Film Festival debut in May of 2008.
