The 35th edition of the International Film Festival Rotterdam will open with the European premiere of Shunichi Nagasaki's "Heart, Beating in the Dark" on Wednesday January 25. The Japanese director will also honored by Rotterdam as its "Filmmaker in Focus" with tribute screenings of a choice of his works Nagasaki will attend the opening night ceremony. The film is part remake and part sequel of Nagasaki's own film of the same title from 1982 as well as its own "making off." The principal actors from 1982 return in the 2005 version, while a new young couple is on the run. [Brian Brooks]
