Here’s the trailer for “Tony Takitani” director Jun Ichikawa’s Buy a Suit, a self-produced film which he unfortunately didn’t get a chance to finish editing before his death on September 19, 2008. This 47-minute film debuted at the 2008 Tokyo International Film Festival and is said to depict “the quiet connections among the people in living through the restlessness and hollowness of Tokyo”. Japan Film blogger Jason Gray saw fit to list it in his top 10 films of the 2008 even though it’s technically not out yet.

The film will be begin screening on April 11, 2009 at Tokyo’s EuroSpace and Osaka’s Umeda Garden Cinema.

Thanks to logboy for bringing this trailer to my attention.
