The movie “Witch’s Perfume,” in theaters now, in which Hitomi Kuroki (62) stars for the first time in five years, has been well received.
The theme of the film is “fragrance,” and it is a Cinderella story in which a young woman (Hinako Sakurai) and others who have lost hope for the future are opened up by the fragrance of a perfume made by a white-haired woman, played by Kuroki, known as a “witch.
Kuroki plays Yayoi Shiraishi, the owner of a perfume store called “Witch-san” with white hair. Yui Miyatake, who wrote and directed the film, fell in love with Kuroki’s presence and wrote the script with Kuroki in mind for the lead role, so he brought out the best of her charms, such as her bewitching beauty and dignified demeanor,” said a film magazine editor.
In the comments section of moviegoers,
Kuroki is so beautiful, so beautiful!
Kuroki is a witch, just as the title says, and her acting is amazing!
Kuroki is a witch, and her acting is amazing! Kuroki joined the Takarazuka Revue in 1981 at the age of 20 as a daughter in the Tsuki group. In her second year, the fastest in history, she was chosen to play the leading male role opposite Mao Daichi (67), the top male star, and became the top girl in the troupe. However, she left Takarazuka after only four years and became a film actress.
In her debut movie starring role, “Incarnation,” she appeared nude, and in “Shitsurakuen” (1997), she played an adulterous love story that became a social phenomenon. There were rumors that she and writer Junichi Watanabe, the author of both films, may have had an affair. She married a man in 1990 and had a daughter in 1998. She has not had a lot of success in the last few years, but she may make a full comeback with this film.

The magazine “FRIDAY” focuses on Kuroki after her transition to an actress: a two-shot with writer Junichi Watanabe, competing in a motorcycle race with a “masked rider,” a night dancing at the launch of a TV drama. Kuroki’s charms are captured in treasured photos. Let’s take a look back at Kuroki’s charms with these treasured photos.
The two co-star in “Shitsurakuen. Hitomi Kuroki looking comfortable, and Mr. Watanabe looking nervous: “I’m not going to appear in it anymore.
The movie “Shitsurakuen,” released in 1997, became a social phenomenon along with the original story by writer Junichi Watanabe. The film, based on the heart-rending incident of Takeo Arishima, was also a hit for its theme of adultery and its bold depiction of sexuality. The film grossed 2.3 billion yen at the box office, making it the second biggest hit after “Princess Mononoke.
On January 12, a scene was filmed at a hotel in Tokyo, and Mr. Watanabe made a special appearance. During a break in the filming, Mr. Watanabe and Kuroki had a chat, and while Kuroki was smiling comfortably, Mr. Watanabe looked nervous throughout the scene.
I was so embarrassed. I won’t answer it again.
I’m not going to answer that. Mr. Watanabe passed away on April 30, 2002 after 80 years of life, and Kuroki made the following comment titled “My beloved Mr. Junichi Watanabe.”
It is no exaggeration to say that Mr. Watanabe was a man of destiny for me.
Kuroki established herself as an acting actress in this film, which became her masterpiece. Even though she has passed her 60th birthday, Kuroki continues to increase her bewitching charm, and expectations are already high for her next film.
