On the day of the wedding, what does fate hold for them?
“This film is about the battle between the “visible” and the “invisible.” The “visible things” mean materialistic values, where people are misled by appearances and economic power. I feel that people today are quite tainted by these values. I hope that people who see the film will realize that it is the “invisible things” that are important.” – Director, Hiroshi Akabane.
‘Beautiful Lure – A Modern Tale of “Painted Skin”‘ (produced by IRH Press and presented by HS Productions) releases on August 10, 2021, on all digital platforms via Random Media.
