    • Synopsis
    • Director San-il Lee (“Villain“, “The Unforgiven”) and the prize winning novelist Shuichi Yoshida reassembled with renewed passion for “Rage” and aim for another landmark in Japanese cinema. “Rage” promises to showcase Lee’s pluckiness and talent for distilling great realism from characters in emotionally-heightened circumstances. The treatment of three different relationships and multiple protagonists all struggling for a place to direct their emotions is quite fluent but unpredictable. A master at telling moving stories that penetrate deeply into contemporary society, Lee sways people’s hearts and cinematic lore with enormous casts who also have international reputations such as Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai”, “Inception”), Mirai Moriyama (“Love Strikes!”), Kenichi Matsuyama (“Norwegian Wood”), Go Ayano (“The Light Shines Only There”), Suzu Hirose (“Our Little Sister”), Aoi Miyazaki (“Eureka”) and Satoshi Tsumabuki (“The Assassin”).
