TOKYO -- Japanese director Yusuke Okuda is matter-of-fact about wanting his second feature film "Somebody's Flowers" to appeal to viewers' inner sense of tragedy. "We all have some kind of tragedy inside of us," Okuda told Nikkei Asia ahead of the film's commercial release on Saturday. "We're born with it."
The film revolves around a freak suburban accident. One very windy day in Tokyo, a man is killed walking into his apartment complex by a falling plant pot, sparking an investigation: was it pushed, or did it just fall?
