Rei Kikukawa Interview -

March 25, 2002

What do you expect of this project?

I think the best part about action movies

is how cool they are,

That's what I like about action movies.

Speedy development of the story,

coolness, rhythm,

and non-stop thrills, I love those feelings.

I'm really looking forward to

the final version of the film.

What is the image of the main character?

She is a lawyer who learns

the limits of the law.

In the scene where the man with guns

breaks through the wall,

she has to face that in an instant,

and she thinks she might be able

to find a way to do what

she really wants to do,

and from there she is pulled

into the underworld.

This lawyer, Yuki, who I played in the movie,

is a person who rushes into things

head first and is full of passion.

She can't stop herself to confirm

whether she is right or not,

thinks to herself, and figures out

what to do from the results.

She is very powerful,

but I'm sure she is incredibly sensitive,

and easily hurt.

What to you think about playing a lawyer?

If the character was a researcher or a doctor,

I might have been able to better relate,

since I took some science courses in college.

However, playing a lawyer wasn't

very familiar to me at all.

What was your impression

of Mr. Muroga, the director?

While I was around him,

I came to understand that

he loves action movies very much.

I think his passion becomes a source

of energy on location

and it makes people move.

As for me, I also obtained power from him,

and was influenced by him,

and I was able to hurry forward.

Since he had such passion for this movie,

What do you think about

the directing methods of Mr. Muroga?

How he pictured things in his mind,

such as thoughts about guns.

or his explanations of

each scene of the script,

and how each one has it's own meaning...

He told me about these things in great detail,

and I realized quite a lot because of him.

In each scene, he told me about the

meaning and the flow of the story,

It meant a lot to me and it helped me

devote myself to each scene

so I really appreciate him doing that.

What was the most impressive scene for you?

Well, the scene, the duel scene

was the most impressive.

We went to the location early

in the morning on that day,

and we had a very hard schedule all day.

The scene was shot at last

but it was the end of the day,

and it was really late and so quiet.

Also it was very, very cold.

I was shaking because of

the excitement and cold,

It was very hard for me to do that scene,

although, I was very tense.

so I guess that environment

was too tough for me

and that's why I was able to do that scene

with a feeling of high tension.

But I still haven't seen the

actual film of that scene,

and I am looking forward to watching it.

Anyway, I hope that scene is what

I expected. I can't wait to watch it.

What was your most impressive line?

Close to the end, after the duel,

after I kill Takita, I say,

"You were absolutely right,

judgment takes only a moment."

That line contained various meanings

and feelings for me

and I could feel my body shaking.

So, that was the most impressive line for me,

and I still thrill myself

just thinking about it.

Were you able to enjoy being on location?

Most scenes were pretty much either

serious parts or high tension parts.

I more enjoyed the fact that we were

shooting an action movie.

I wonder if understand what I mean?

Good, good.

What was enjoyable to me was the fact

the fact that I was in an action movie.

However, whenever I was actually acting,

I had to be so serious that it was

beyond enjoyable.

But anyway, the atmosphere on location

was very enjoyable.

The director was too.

I was able to feel secure...

I felt at ease and was able to

relax while I was acting.

During the break, I was also able

to talk with various people there.

I really enjoyed the time off during shooting.

Have you taken any lessons

for the action scenes?

In my previous movie, I did have

a small lesson on swordplay, however,

there were no scenes of swordplay

in that movie, or in this one.

I'm trying to hold on to those experiences,

but I'm starting to forget them.

I hope I'll be able to re-learn them

so I can use them sometime.

Did you become familiar with guns?

When you hold a gun in your hand,

the feeling that the gun and your hand

are combined together into one

eventually starts to come, and

the more time you spend with it,

the stronger the feeling becomes,

so I can't really tell you clearly.

Compared with my previous movie,

I did feel some intimacy with guns.

Or... how can I describe this feeling?...

I do think a feeling of familiarity

was born inside of me,

and I was happy about it.

Are you confident about your athletic skills?

I'm pretty good at sports.

Well, I'm good at sports, like I said,

I was good at jumping rope,

and the horizontal bar,

and, what else... roller skating,

and acrobatics.

I challenged various techniques

in those sports,

and every time I got the hang of it,

I was proud of myself about it

so I guess you could say that

I was good at sports in general.

I would love to use the sports that

I am good at in movies,

or if I couldn't do it, I would want

to overcome that wall.

Anyway, I love sports.

What do action movies mean

to Rie Kikukawa?

I love action.

I love both watching action movies,
