SHE’S JUST A SHADOW, a new arthouse thriller hitting theaters on July 19th from Breaking Glass Pictures. This film, which is a modern take on the gangster tale set in Tokyo, stars Tao Okamoto (THE WOLVERINE, BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN), Haruka Abe (CYBERBULLY opposite Maisie Williams), famed Japanese musician Kihiro, and Kentez Asaka (THE OUTSIDER opposite Jared Leto).
Here is the trailer to preview the film:
A beautiful Japanese madam and her ladies. A deranged, drug-addled Tokyo gangster and his crew. A sadistic serial killer on the loose.
The intersection of these stories, and the interior world of the characters, plays out against a dreamlike backdrop of ultraviolence and orgiastic sex, as everyone tries futilely to rewrite their futures and cheat death.
A modern, dreamlike take on the gangster genre, SHE’S JUST A SHADOW is the action-packed story of a matriarchal crime family engaged in a vicious gang war. A deranged killer is leaving his victims on railroad tracks all over Tokyo, and the only thing more dangerous than him is the vicious love triangle within the family itself.
