See The Visually Astonishing Trailer for Yakuza film "SHE'S JUST A SHADOW"

 Hola Dannie aqui,

The good people at Breaking Glass Pictures have released a trailer for "SHE'S JUST A SHADOW" from writer/director Adam Sherman. Some of you may know Sherman from his work directing on 2012's "Crazy Eyes," 2010's "Happiness Runs," and the music video "Dead Doll." Sherman is also known for his work as a producer on "Wristcutters: A Love Story," "Marfa Girl," and "Marfa Girl 2." "SHE"S JUST A SHADOW" is a film set in the bustling neon-clad streets of Tokyo and is an action-packed matriarchal yakuza gangster film that borders on arthouse. 


Breaking Glass Pictures describes Sherman's "SHE'S JUST A SHADOW" as-

"A beautiful Japanese madam. A deranged, drug-addled Tokyo gangster and his crew. A sadistic serial killer on the loose. The intersection of these stories, and the interior worlds of these characters plays out against a dreamlike backdrop of ultra-violence and orgiastic sex as everyone tries futilely to rewrite their futures and cheat death. A dreamlike yet modern take on the gangster genre, SHE’S JUST A SHADOW is the action-packed story of a matriarchal crime family engaged in a vicious gang war, while a deranged killer is leaving his victims on railroad tracks all over Tokyo. The only thing more dangerous than the killer is the vicious love triangle within the family itself."


Here is the trailer for "SHE'S JUST A SHADOW" enjoy.
