'Too Young To Die!' wins Nyaff audience award
Kankuro Kudo’s anarchic Japanese comedy has triumphed at the 15th New York Asian Film Festival, which executive director Samuel Jamier said drew record audiences.

Too Young To Die! received its North American premiere at the festival, and stars Ryunosuke Kamiki as a student sent to Buddhist hell after a freak bus accident, only to make a pact with a guitar-shredding demon to be reincarnated and reunite with his high school crush.

Toho Co Ltd handles international sales. Tomoya Nagase also stars as the demon.

Showbox’s South Korean thrillers Inside Men from Woo Min-ho and A Violent Prosecutor from Lee Il-hyeong came second and third in the poll.

Inside Men’s Lee Byung-hun attended the festival to receive one of three Star Asia Awards.

Heaven's Door review

-Michael Arias is a patient man. He fought a very long time for a chance to prove his worth as a director, grabbing it with both hands when it finally came along. And with success, as the world took notice. And yet, for his second feature film interest seems rather limited. Completely unjustified in my opinion, as it's easily one of the best films of 2009 (so far).

With only two feature films to his name, Arias' career is already worth a bunch of studies and books. He was the first American ever to direct a film at Studio 4°C and almost beat them at their own game. Tekon Kinkreet is one of the greatest animes to have come along in the last couple of years, displaying a sense of style and energy not often seen beyond the Japanese borders.
