Isao Yukisada goes on "Parade"

Tue, May 26, 2009 (3:15am EDT)

Director Isao Yukisada is working on a screen adaptation of author Shuichi Yoshida's first full-length novel, "Parade," which won the Yamamoto Shugoro Prize in 2002.

Yukisada has apparently been hoping to make a movie out of the book ever since it was published in 2002. The story revolves around an unusual group of five young adults living together in a 2LDK apartment (two bedrooms, living room, dining room, and kitchen). Despite sharing such a small space, it turns out in the end that they really don't know much about each other.

Yukisada has assembled a talented young cast for the movie. Tatsuya Fujiwara stars as Naoki, an employee of a film distribution company. Karina plays the illustrator Miki, while Shihori Kanjiya is the unemployed Kotomi and Keisuke Koide is the college student Ryosuke. Around the same time that a string of disturbing incidents occurs in their neighborhood, Miki meets a male prostitute named Satoru (Kento Hayashi), who ends up also living in the apartment.

In addition to directing, Yukisada wrote the screenplay for the adaptation. Filming started on May 15 and will continue until mid-June. The movie is currently scheduled for release in 2010.

Yukisada's "Parade" wins jury prize at Berlin

Sat, February 20, 2010 (2:02am EST)

On Friday night, director Isao Yukisada's latest movie, "Parade," received the Prize of the FIPRESCI Jury, one of the independent jury prizes at the Berlin International Film Festival.

This is the second year in a row that a Japanese film received the award. Last year, Sion Sono's "Ai no Mukidashi" ("Love Exposure") was given the same prize, plus another independent jury prize.

"Parade" is based on a novel by Shuichi Yoshida about a group of young adults who live together. The movie features Tatsuya Fujiwara (27), Karina (25), Shihori Kanjiya (24), Kento Hayashi (19), and Keisuke Koide (26).

The award came just in time for the movie's opening in Japan this weekend. It also coincides with two of the stars' birthdays - Koide turned 26 on Saturday, while Karina is turning 26 on Sunday.
