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.
