Director of Vesoul Intl. Festival of Asian Cinemas Conferred the Order of the Rising Sun

On 3 November 2019, His Majesty the Emperor of Japan conferred the Order of the Rising Sun, Rayons d’Or with Rosette, to Martine Thérouanne, Director of the Vesoul International Festival of Asian Cinemas. In Japan, November 3 is the Day of Culture. This prestigious decoration, the oldest in Japan, was awarded to Thérouanne in recognition of her cultural commitment to make Japanese cinema and filmmakers known to Western audiences.

Within the 25 years of its existence, Vesoul International Festival of Asian Cinemas (Vifac) that was co-founded by Thérouanne and her husband Jean-Marc Thérouanne, has presented 200 Japanese films; among them, cult films of recognized directors and young talents, as well as masters of Japanimation.

The festival awarded fifteen prizes to Japanese films and filmmakers, including the prestigious Honorary Golden Rickshaw to Kore-eda Hirokazu at Vifac 2012, later winner of the Golden Palm at Festival de Cannes 2018.

Vifac staged six retrospectives and homages. To name a few,

Drew Barrymore Wasn't 'Bummed Out' about Being Single on Valentine's Day for a Sweet Reason
Drew Barrymore may not be dating anyone at the moment, but that doesn’t mean her life isn’t filled with love.

In a heartfelt message to her followers on Thursday, the Santa Clarita Diet star, 43, revealed that even though she was single on Valentine’s Day (again), she wasn’t “sitting around bummed out.”

“I am not totally sure what Valentine’s Day is supposed to feel like. But when I walked in my trailer today at work and saw that my friend Joy had put this on my mirror, I knew,” Barrymore wrote, alongside a photo the sweet surprise.

Interview with Yujiro Harumoto: I want to make what I can’t explain with words.

Yujiro Harumoto graduated from Nihon University College of Art, and worked as an assistant director at Shochiku Kyoto Studio on period dramas. Since 2010, he has been a freelance assistant director on many more films and TV dramas. “Going the Distance” is his debut feature.

On the occasion of the screening of his film in Vesoul International Film Festival of Asian Cinema, we talk to him about the film, Japanese people, the industry, and many other topics

You have been an assistant director on both films and TV dramas. What are the differences between the two and which one do you enjoy more?

The most important differences are the budget and the period for shooting. Films have bigger budget and longer shooting period than dramas.

The assistant director on films can create his own images, and, in general, enjoy working. The ones in dramas only do their routine work any way they can,

Film Review: Going the Distance aka Kazoku E (2016) by Yujiro Harumoto

‘’Going the Distance’’ is Yujiro Harumoto’s first feature film, who is also responsible for the screenplay and the film editing. ‘’Going the Distance’’ had its world premiere on Tokyo International Film Festival’s Japanese Splash section and it’s French Premiere on Festival International des Cinemas d’Asie.

Currently, Asahi and Kaori are preparing for their wedding, which is scheduled in six months and Kaori is hoping that her grandmother will still remember her until then, since she is suffering from dementia.

Ranking Every Training Montage in the ‘Rocky’ Franchise

In any self-respecting sports flick, you can expect to find a training montage or two. In the case of the Rocky franchise, we’ve been treated to an abundance of them, putting our heroes through rigorous exercises and methods to prepare them for their big final act bout, often set to the beat of a catchy tune.

YouTube/WarnerBros/MGM

With Creed II and the promise of a new training montage with us, let’s count down what it has to match up to when it comes to that all important sequence. Warning: this feature may make you eat lightning and crap thunder.

‘Tommy The Machine Gunn Rises’ – Rocky V

It seems fitting that the worst montage comes from the worst Rocky movie. I stand by the opinion that Rocky V has some merits (I’ve always quite liked Stallone’s performance in it), but this montage isn’t one of them.

Drew Barrymore and Justin Long Could Be Going the Distance Again 8 Years After Their Split
It looks like Drew Barrymore and Justin Long may be giving their relationship another shot! According to E! News, the exes have "been talking more" following his recent split from Chvrches singer Lauren Mayberry. "They are both single and they are spending time together, [but] that's all it is for now," a source told the outlet.

While most people may have a tough time staying friends with an ex, Justin and Drew reportedly have a "very special connection and bond that never went away." Drew has "a fondness for him and he's always been in her life, even if they weren't a couple." In fact, they apparently even "worked together and bounced ideas off of each other from time to time."

Drew and Justin famously dated in August 2007 and starred together in 2009's He's Just Not That Into You and 2010's Going the Distance. They eventually split in October 2010, but have

Drew Barrymore and Ex Justin Long Spotted Together in NYC: Report
Friendly exes Drew Barrymore and Justin Long were recently seen together at a New York hotel.

The actress, 43, met Long, 40, at the Lowell Hotel on Monday, according to Page Six. Reps for both actors have not commented.

People confirms Long has split from Chvrches frontwoman Lauren Mayberry, whom he began dating in 2016. Barrymore’s four-year marriage to Will Kopelman ended in divorce in 2016 (they have two daughters, 5½-year-old Olive and 4-year-old Frankie).

The longtime friends dated from 2007 to 2010 and also costarred in two romantic comedies together — the 2009 film He’s Just Not That Into You and 2010’s Going the Distance.

‘Literally, Right Before Aaron’ Trailer: Justin Long Goes To Cobie Smulders’ Wedding

For quite some time Justin Long has been the face of the middling romantic comedy genre. The actor has led a string of relatively low-profile films about down on their luck dudes pining for lost loves and manic pixie dream girls (“Going The Distance,” “A Case Of You,” “Comet”). But while Long-fronted pictures haven’t always fared well (“Comet” was at least interesting), he has mostly managed to remain a welcome, if quantifiable presence, thus giving us reason to remain hopeful for his upcoming dramedy “Literally, Right Before Aaron,” which pairs him with the delightful Cobie Smulders.

Drew Barrymore Thought She Was High After Smoking Fake Weed

Drew Barrymore once thought she got high whilst smoking fake marijuana on a film set.

The 42-year-old actress was shooting for 2010's 'Going The Distance' with Justin Long when she was tasked with smoking from a fake bong, but according to the prop expert Jeff Butcher, the blonde beauty believed she had actually smoked the drug, and both her and director Nanette Burstein thought she was high.

Jeff said: "There was a scene with Drew Barrymore and Justin Long where they smoke out of a bong, and it was kind of a mixed experience. [We used a] herb that looks like weed but doesn't get you high.

"I spent like an hour smoking this bong to try and make it look like a bong that had been smoked in before. And then, you know, we did the scene and Drew thought that she was high and the directors thought that she was high!

'Under the Shadow' looks like a great, slow burn horror flick

'Under the Shadow' looks like a great, slow burn horror flick
I don't usually let the accolades in the trailer sway me because anyone can say anything about anything. For instance, the worst movie ever made -- Going the Distance with Justin Long and Drew Barrymore - could have had a trailer quoting some unknown critic saying, "A cinematic wonder! Incredible! But keep in mind, I've time travelled from the far past and have never seen a movie before!"  So yeah, there were a lot of captions telling me I'm going to like Under the Shadow. Those captions don't sway me, those critics could all be leprechauns, just making stuff up about rainbows and foreign movies. But it's not every day I come across a ghost story set in 1988 Iraq during the Iran-Iraq war. So I did some Internet researching (a.k.a. Googling) and everything I read reinforced my interest. It's the debut of Iranian-born filmmaker Babak Anvari. He grew

Rogue One is going to fail

Rogue One is going to fail
Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes and clips and puts it all in perspective. In the new trailer, the battle droid K-2So (and new fan favorite?) warns Jyn Erso and her Rogue One crew that there's a "97.66% chance of failure." That's pretty bad. In fact, it's terrible. This means they won't get the plans, they are all going to die, and the whole thing is going to be a tragedy. That's a rough movie going experience (although not as rough as Going the Distance with Drew Barrymore, trust me on this). It's true that droids are not always the best at making calculations. In Empire Strikes Back, C-3P0 famously told Han Solo the "chance of successfully navigating an asteroid field was 3720 to 1." We know that Han Solo defies the odds, that's why you never give him the odds. But are droids usually wrong?

Margot Robbie To Play Tonya Harding In 'I, Tonya'

Margot Robbie To Play Tonya Harding In 'I, Tonya'
A few years back, as part of their excellent, ongoing documentary series "30 For 30," Espn unveiled "The Price of Gold," a look at the scandal that made headlines around the world when in 1994, when figure skater Nancy Kerrigan was attacked and injured by her rival Tonya Harding. It was a story that had it all — sports, jealousy, high stakes intrigue — but as the documentary by Nanette Burnstein ("Going The Distance," "American Teen") revealed, there was even more going on beneath the surface. Now, the tale will be dramatized in "I, Tonya" with a rather interesting choice for the lead. Deadline reports that Margot Robbie will take the role of Tonya Harding in the picture. Screenwriter Steve Rogers interviewed Harding and her husband Jeff Gillooly as he put together his script, getting the perspective of an athlete who was well outside the wealthy world that Olympians are often part of. However, Harding was also.

No one can agree on the top 5 greatest Coen Brothers films
As we began talking about editorial content we could publish to celebrate the release of Hail, Caesar!, the latest film from Joel and Ethan Coen, we realized that none of us had the same top five lists, and that it seems unusual for that to be the case. The Coens have had such a rich and varied career that it is impossible to pin them down to one style or one theme or one type of storytelling. Some people love their comedies. Some people love it when they get dark. Some people love the underdogs, the least-liked of their films. But what's clear is that every film they've made has its fans, and even their worst films are beloved by someone. There are few artists like the Coen Brothers, and we were delighted to get lists from each of our special guest contributors this time. The diversity of the replies
