Nao Omori stars in live-action “Sutegataki Hitobito”

The live-action adaptation of George Akiyama’s manga “Sutegataki Hitobito” is set to premiere at the 26th Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) on October 17, 2013.

The film was directed by Hideo Sakaki and stars Nao Omori as a sex-obsessed, unemployed truck driver who returns to his hometown where he meets a girl named Kyoko (Hitomi Miwa). Largely due to the fact that she’s the only person who’s actually nice to him, the two begin dating and living together without truly realizing what the other wants out of the arrangement.
