Gift (2014) movie trailer

Trailer for Japanese movie Gift, starring Kenichi Endo and Rena Matsui. The later plays a bar hostess who’s running away from a secret past, then she met with a bad-tempered but successful businessman who proposed to pay her 100 million yen (~one million USD) for 100 hours of her time (it’s not as kinki as it may sound).

Endo is a veteran who has starred in many dramas and films, mostly as supportive cast AFAIK. Meanwhile, this is the first leading role in a feature film for Matsui, who’s a member of SKE48, one of the girl groups under the popular AKB48 franchise.
