Third Window Films is pleased to announce Europe’s first blu-ray and the UK’s first release of Shinya Tsukamoto’s Gemini.
Adapting the Edogawa Rampo short story The Twins, Shinya Tsukamoto’s (Tetsuo, Tokyo Fist) modernist Meiji horror represents the director’s first foray into period films and fleshes out Rampo’s original tale of savage sibling rivalry considerably.
Yukio (Masahiro Motoki) is living a charmed life: he is a respected young doctor with a successful practice and a beautiful wife. His only problem is that his wife is suffering from amnesia, and her past is unknown. Things begin to fall apart, however, when both his parents die suddenly, killed by a mysterious stranger with Yukio’s face. Only when Yukio confronts this stranger will the mystery of his identity, and his wife’s past, be revealed.
Gemini is available 2nd November on Blu-ray from Third Window Films; including an audio commentary by Tom Mes, author of Iron Man: The Cinema of Shinya Tsukamoto, a Making of Gemini featurette directed by Takashi Miike, Behind the Scenes, Make-up demonstration, Venice Film Festival featurettes, the original trailer, and the first 1000 units come with slipcase featuring new artwork illustrated by Ian McEwan.
