Actress Keiko Kitagawa, 23, takes on a serious role when she plays a woman who loses her boyfriend in a car accident in the melodrama “Matataki.” Traumatized by the event, she becomes unable to recall memories of their final moments together. The film, which opens on June 19, is based on the novel by Ren Kawahara.
Kitagawa and co-star Masaki Okada, 23, were joined at the recent Japan premiere by 120 fans invited to attend via the social networking site Twitter. Kitagawa—who said that she lost many friends her age in the 1995 Great Hanshin Earthquake—told the audience that the message of the film is that “we should make every moment of our life count because it can be lost in an instant.”
The busy Kitagawa can also be currently seen in the Fuji TV drama “Tsuki no Koibito - Moon Lovers.”
