The much-anticipated movie adaptation of "二ノ国" (NINOKUNI), a popular title from the Fukuoka-based game company "Level-5," will finally hit Japanese cinemas on Friday 23rd August! Level-5 CEO Hino Akihiro was the executive producer for the piece. He also worked on the story and screenplay. The plot development is simply amazing! The film is set in the real world of "一ノ国" (ICHINOKUNI), which exists parallel to the magic realm of "二ノ国" (NINOKUNI). It depicts the conflicts that arise between three childhood friends over issues such as love and friendship. The ending has lots of twists and turns, so be prepared for some surprises! The film is classified as a "teen-fantasy," but the story is full of drama and examines the courage that the protagonist musters up in order to face impossible decisions head on. The movie's tagline "Inochi wo Erabe. (lit.: Choose life) really matches the serious quality of the plot!
