A film I'd also really like to see soon is Koji Wakamatsu's, Caterpillar, which was nominated for the Golden Bear award at last year's 60th Berlin International Film Festival, actress Shinobu Terajima won the best actress award for her role in the film, Wakamatsu took his inspiration from an Edogawa Rampo short story,it tells the story of a soldier returning horrifically wounded from the Sino-Japanese war. Another film shown at the same festival was Yoji Yamada's Ototo/About Her Brother a film due to be released on dvd soon. A film I'm hoping to see soon is Takeshi Kitano's latest Outrage, and also a film I missed when it was released but want to see is The Clone Returns to the Homeland (2008)dir:Kanji Nakajima.
