Nozomi Sasaki stars in mobile phone novel adaptation "Tenshi no Koi"

Mon, June 15, 2009 (2:09am EDT)

Model Nozomi Sasaki (21) has her first starring role in the movie "Tenshi no Koi," directed by Yuri Kanchiku. The film is adapted from the popular mobile phone novel of the same name that was published in book form last year.

Written by an author under the name "sin," the story revolves around a 17-year-old high school girl named Rio (Sasaki) whose traumatic past has led her to close off her heart. After meeting a 35-year-old university lecturer and falling in love, she learns to get her life back on track. Sasaki's role will deal with issues such as rape, abortion, and compensated dating.

"Tenshi no Koi" has been referred to as the "teen love Bible," surpassing previous mobile phone novel successes like "Koizora" and "Akai Ito." It has reached 13 million page views, compared to the 6 million of "Koizora" and 8 million of "Akai Ito." The first edition of the printed book became a bestseller at 500,000 copies.

Sasaki barely made her acting debut last year in the movie "Handsome Suit," in which she played a model. "Tenshi no Koi" is expected to be quite a leap for her, but she seemed optimistic about the part, saying, "I don't know much about acting, but I can sympathize with Rio facing her painful past and living positively."

"Tenshi no Koi" is scheduled to open in theaters this winter.

Tanihara to co-star in "Tenshi no Koi"

Mon, July 20, 2009 (3:43am EDT)

Actor Shosuke Tanihara (37) will be joining model Nozomi Sasaki (21) in director Yuri Kanchiku's upcoming movie, "Tenshi no Koi," which was publicized last month.

"Tenshi no Koi" is adapted from a hugely popular mobile phone novel published last year. Sasaki, in her first starring movie role, plays a 17-year-old high school girl with a traumatic past. She falls in love with a 35-year-old university lecturer (Tanihara) who has been diagnosed with a fatal and incurable illness. To play the part, Tanihara reportedly had to shed 5 kilograms in one month.

Tanihara and Sasaki worked together previously in last year's "Handsome Suit." Tanihara had his first starring role in that movie, while Sasaki made her big screen debut with a supporting role.

"Tenshi no Koi" has already started shooting, and is currently scheduled for an autumn release.
