Two lost souls make an unexpected connection in MAP OF THE SOUNDS OF TOKYO, a sexy thriller from writer-director Isabel Coixet (Elegy). Ryu (Rinko Kikuchi, Oscar nominee for Babel) is a fish-market employee by day, contract killer by night. David (Sergi Lopez, Pan’s Labyrinth) is a Spaniard who runs a Tokyo wine shop. David’s girlfriend has recently committed suicide, and her businessman father, blaming David, hires a hitman to kill him. The assassin turns out to be Ryu, and she falls for the man she has been sent to eliminate, leading to a series of steamy sexual encounters in a hotel. Will David learn of his new lover’s secret intent? Will Ryu be able to get out of her deadly contract? The sounds of the Tokyo night hold the answers.
