Micro-budget Japanese feature Be My Baby comes to UK DVD in May
16 April 2015
Third Window Films have announced the UK DVD release of Be My Baby (Koi no uzu, also known as The Vortex of Love), a special ‘workshop’ film from Japan.
Made by an actors’ workshop featuring all newcomers under the supervision of director Hitoshi One (Love Strikes!), it was all made in just 4 days for a budget of less than $10,000.
Unfolding in the two weeks following a casual party at the home of the overbearing Koji, nine '20-something' Japanese revellers with long, deeply entwined histories navigate the secrets and lies of contemporary relationships. Touching on issues of self-respect, emotional manipulation, casual viciousness, petty interpersonal politicking, dependency, insecurity, infidelity and misogyny, One Hitoshi’s drama is as dark as it is soapy — with unfortunately recognisable characters with recognisable human flaws.
Be My Baby will be released on UK DVD by Third Window Films on 25th May 2015 at the RRP of £12.99
Special features will include:
Girls Talk – Pajama party with female cast of the film
