JFF 2019: BEFORE WE VANISH 散歩する侵略者

2017 / 129 min / Sci-fi, Fantasy / Japanese with English subtitles / PG13 (Some Violence 些许暴力画面)
Dir. Kiyoshi KUROSAWA 黒沢 清
In his 20th film, acclaimed horror director KUROSAWA reinvents the alien movie as a unique and profoundly human tale of love and mystery. Three aliens travel to Earth on a reconnaissance mission for a mass invasion. Having taken possession of humans, the visitors rob the hosts of their essence – good, evil, property, family, belonging – leaving only hollow shells, which are all but unrecognizable to their loved ones. Equally hilarious, thrilling, and profound, Before We Vanish reminds audiences of the continued strength of one of Japanese cinema’s most unique auteurs – and the value of the human spirit.
