Enigmatic Mamoru (Tadanobu Asano) lives alone with his poisonous but hauntingly luminous jellyfish that stings anyone getting too close. Mamoru’s intense antisocial behavior is echoed by his co-worker and sole friend, Yuji (Jô Odagiri). When Yuji is entrusted with the care of the lethal jellyfish, he becomes attached to the strange creature, unaware of the dangers lurking in the near future. Kiyoshi Kurosawa, one of Japan’s most unique auteurs, builds a fascinatingly disorienting and quietly apocalyptic tale of alienated twenty- somethings in this haunting 2003 drama BRIGHT FUTURE. This was Kurosawa’s first feature to be selected for the prestigious Cannes Film Festival and marked a departure from his previous famed J-horror masterpieces such as PULSE and CURE.
