In the interview with Shogen (Your Lovely Smile) and Matsuura Ryo, actor and actress of December, we talked about their roles in the movies at the Far East Film Festival 25 and how the learned to play their character in such a sublime way.

December, your lovely smile: Watanabe Hirobumi is the most eccentric Japanese director of the moment. Having said that, let’s ask ourselves what would happen if Watanabe plays Watanabe in a cinematic short circuit… Lim Kah Wai has dared to create a mockumentary that sees ours in the role of an indie director touring the cinemas of Japan to propose his film. Behind the bewildered and rarefied comedy, an act of love for independent cinema.
