Japan's Showgate Inc ショウゲート has announced details about Journey to the Shore 岸辺の旅, the new film by director KUROSAWA Kiyoshi 黒沢清.

Based on the novel by YUMOTO Kazumi 湯本香樹実, the road trip drama stars FUKATSU Eri 深津絵里 as a woman whose husband (ASANO Tadanobu 浅野忠信) suddenly returns home after disappearing for three years. The script was co-written by Kurosawa and UJITA Takashi 宇治田隆史.

Showgate also announced that Diaphana Films has taken distribution rights for France and is planning a 100 to 150-screen release in 2015.

"I'm very happy that a France distribution deal was confirmed before the film even began shooting," Kurosawa said in a statement, "This film deals with a universal theme, so I hope it will reach audiences both in and outside Japan."

Showgate also plans to release the film theatrically in Japan in 2015. France's mk2 Group is handling international sales.
