TOKYO! 3 Movie Clips and 2 Teaser Trailers

     May 20, 2008

Premièring at Cannes is the new movie Tokyo! It’s a film that has three parts and each one has been directed by someone great – Michel Gondry, Leos Carax and Joon Ho Bong!

Anyway, the Cannes website has been updated with a ton of videos from the movie and I’ve posted them below. Since I haven’t seen the movie yet…here’s the official info:

Three short films (“Interior Design,” “Merde” and “Shaking Tokyo”) compose the movie. Each segment is freely inspired by Tokyo and shot in the heart of the city. “Tokyo!” is a symphony interpreted in three dissonant parts, reflecting the image of the metropolis.

“Interior Design” by Michel Gondry: the surreal fable of a young couple who moves to Tokyo in search of a future. While the boy’s ambition is clear – be a movie maker- the girl drifts gradually apart. Both of them will be drowned in the imensity until the girl, feeling alone, discovers something strange.

“Merde” by Leos Carax: a mysterious man spreads confusion on the streets of Tokyo through a succession of irrational and provocative acts. ” The Creature of the Sewers ” as the media have dubbed him, arouse passion or repulsion. He will be captured, judged and then…

“Shaking Tokyo” by Bong Joon-Ho: He is a hikikomori – like many others in Japan, he has withdrawn from all contact with the outside world .When the pizza delivery girl faints during an earthquake, the unthinkable happens – the man falls in love. Will he take the unimaginable step : leaving the dead security of his apartment for the streets of Tokyo?

And with that…here are 2 new teaser trailers and 3 video clips. You def. need to watch them!
