It's a china-jap collaboration....it's known as 空海 Ku Kai in Japan.


The title song Mountain Top is by jap band Radwimps. The MV shows abit more scenes.


Oh the OST is in english. I thought this is a promotion or fanmade video. Cant wait to watch this movie (and also Youth). Have been looking out for links since the movies are not released in my country.
