Trailer for the Japanese version of “Love Actually” (Subete wa Kimi ni Aeta kara)

The official website for Katsuhide Motoki’s Subete wa Kimi ni Aeta kara has been updated with a YouTube embed of the film’s new trailer.

Drawing direct inspiration from the 2003 British romantic comedy Love Actually, the movie consists of six interconnected stories revolving around 10 people at Tokyo Station right before Christmas. It was produced in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Tokyo Station.

In “Eve no Koibito”, Hiroshi Tamaki plays a successful web design company president who thinks women are only interested in him for his money until he meets a young aspiring actress (Rin Takanashi) at a restaurant.

In “Enkyori Renai”, a Tokyo-based fashion designer (Fumino Kimura) attempts to meet up with her long-distance lover from Sendai (Masahiro Higashide) in time for Christmas in spite of their hectic schedules.

In “Christmas Present”, an orphanage worker named Chiharu (Miwako Ichikawa) waits for a new adoptive parent to pick up 7-year-old Akane.

In “Nibun no Ichi Seijin Shiki”, a train driver (Saburo Tokito) has yet to tell his son he only has 6 months to live.

In “Christmas no Yuuki”, a part-time worker at a cake shop (Tsubasa Honda) tries to work up the courage to ask out her coworker.

And finally, in “Okurete Kita Present”, the pastry shop’s owner (Chieko Baisho) remembers a 49-year-old promise which has yet to be fulfilled.

“Subete wa Kimi ni Aeta kara” will be released by Warner Bros. in Japan on November 22, 2013.

I love 'Love Actually' but I don't think this version can live up to it...

I think I may watch that for the Japanese language.

I keep reading this is the japanese version of Love actually but after watching the trailer i've see nothing familiar with the original version, except but the christmas vibe...
Looking forward to see Tamaki's performance.

I think the correct term should be "based on love actually" - the approach is similar. Although this one seems more bittersweet and more somber. I'm curious how the characters are connected, cause that's what made LA quite special. They're all connected but not in a forceful way.

"interconnected" you're right... producers must have related that concept.
Still... everytime i read the tittle to articles that promote this movie is with the "japanese version of love actually" so~

Ooohh~ i remember Arioka Daiki talked about "Love Actually" before and he recommended it so i'm looking forward to this Japanese version ♪
