The official website for Barbet Schroeder's Inju (Inju, la bête dans l'ombre) is now online, and there's a teaser trailer for the movie on it. Also, there's an image gallery for the movie on the website of AlloCiné.

According to a news release from international sales agent UGC International, the screenplay for Inju was written by Frédérique Henri, Jean-Armand Bougrelle, Eitan Arrusi, and Schroeder, based on the novel Beast in the Shadows (Injû) by Ranpo Edogawa (a.k.a. Edogawa Rampo; né Tarô Hirai). The movie stars Benoît Magimel, Lika Minamoto, Gen Shimaoka, Ryô Ishibashi, Shun Sugata, Tomonobu Fukui, and Erika Niibo.

Here's a synopsis for Inju from Cineuropa: "[Inju] centres on Alex Fayard (Magimel), a novelist who comes to Japan to promote his new book. During his stay, he falls passionately in love with a geisha (Minamoto), who tells him she has received death threats from her lover. ¶ In accepting to help her, he finds himself face to face with Shundei Oe, a director of thrillers of which Alex is an expert in France. This encounter plunges him into a world of mystery and perversity, following the traces of a man hungry for revenge."

UGC Distribution is scheduled to release Inju theatrically in France on September 24th.
