"I had a dream like this..." Based on renowned Japanese writer Natsume Soseki's same-titled short story collection, Ten Nights of Dreams
brings ten fantastical dream sequences to film with great visual and psychological panache. Representing the combined efforts of eleven directors, this outstanding anthology delves into the surreal subconscious with ten madly imaginative, reality-subverting visions that range from wonderfully wacky to nightmarishly unsettling.
The ten shorts are directed by legendary filmmaker Kon Ichikawa, who previously adapted Soseki's Kokoro for film in 1955; Akio Jissoji (Tokyo: The Last Megalopolis, Rampo Noir); horror maestro Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge); Blue Ribbon Best Director Miwa Nishikawa (Yureru); Nobuhiro Yamashita (Linda Linda Linda); actor/director Matsuo Suzuki (Otakus in Love, Welcome to the Quiet Room); J-horror standbys Atsushi Shimizu (The Wish), Keisuke Toyoshima (Tales of Terror), and Yudai Yamaguchi (Battlefield Baseball); and the new directing team of Final Fantasy character designer Yoshitaka Amano and gaming guru Masaaki Kawahara
