Tunguska Butterfly - Asami's Final Film?

Post by Guro Taku »

That's how it's marketed at least. Not sure if it's related to her batte with cancer or previous comments she made about wanting to focus more on her career as a singer.

TUNGUSKA BUTTERFLY casts her as Saki, a former elite soldier and professional thief who is now just staying afloat with minor jobs. When she spots Mari, a young girl stealing from a store, a connection is formed. Turns out the young girl's mother is shacking up with a yakuza who of course is a complete psycho. When Mari's life is in danger, she needs Saki's help to survive. Directed by Akira Nobi, a relative unknown who previously contributed to THE ABCs OF TETSUDON.

Looking forward to seeing the trailer before I say more.

But I'm hopeful this will be more serious Asami. I don't like her in "Asami mode" but I loved her in Gun Woman where she played a mute.

It'll have its world premiere this month at a film festival in Hamburg, Germany of all places. I expect a trailer and some reviews will arrive soon.

Here's a review:

Apparently Asami is really good in it but the film itself is mediocre at best. The reviewer is also clearly unaware that this was her final acting role.

Dear God that trailer narrator!

Asami and the action look good, the rest...
