Parkour in a post-apocalyptic universe

“As for The attack of the Titanswe were very inspired by parkour, the sports discipline and its acrobatic techniques,” explained director Tetsurô Araki to 20 minutes. “We were advised by Zen Shimada, a specialist in these practices, to reproduce the movements in a rugged environment.”
Variation of “The Little Mermaid”

bubble is presented by Tetsurô Araki as a variation of The little Mermaid: “This story inspired me because it allowed me to paint the portrait of a melancholy young man who falls in love with an unapproachable girl, a theme that speaks to me.” But for the director, his biggest challenge “was mixing romance and action.”
Up to now accustomed to series, Tetsurô Araki hopes to make other feature films, although the pace of production is very demanding: “It requires more rigor because you have to have everything in mind from the beginning of the project, which allows for better control.” .
