After the death of his wife, lonely widower Shigeharu Aoyama (Ryo Ishibashi, THE GRUDGE) agrees to a deceptive plan suggested by his film producer friend: stage a fake audition with a series of women in the hopes that he can find a new wife.
Shigeharu is instantly drawn to a beautiful, seemingly demure woman named Asami. He attempts to investigate Asami’s past, but he struggles to learn anything about her. Ignoring the misgivings this causes in him, he decides to pursue the relationship anyway, won over by her charm and beauty. But as he gets to know her better, he soon discovers that Asami’s meek exterior masks a darkness beyond anything he could possibly imagine.
From filmmaker Takashi Miike (ICHI THE KILLER), AUDITION is a story of dishonesty, fear, and the dangers of underestimating even the most timid among us. Trust us, Asami will haunt you long after the credits roll.
