quietearth [Celluloid 11.10.08] movie news scifi drama

I've been clocking this website for a while not knowing what to expect, that is until I read this Variety review which said: "a Japanese oddity that should please arthouse auds and sci-fi cultists alike. Bewitchingly intense low-budgeter has few special effects but achieves a glossy sheen, thanks to excellent lensing and well-chosen architectural backdrops." With that little spiel, I was excited, and the trailer does not disappoint.

"Kohei Takahara, an astronaut who dies in the line of duty, is legally resurrected as a clone: however, contrary to the scientists' expectations, he reverts to his childhood memories when his twin brother drowned sacrificing his life for Kohei. Kohei's clone discovers the body of his former self mistakenly believing that is is his deceased twin. Reliving his tragic past, he sets off carrying his corpse body on a journey to the beautiful hometown where he lived with his now dead mother. What shocking discovery will the second clone of Kohei make in the ruins of his hometown?"
