Rimi Natsukawa becomes an actress – Tokyograph

Newlywed singer Rimi Natsukawa is ready to make her acting debut. She has been cast in ‘Minami no Shima no Furimun,’ a movie starring and directed by comedian Gori of Garage Sale.

The movie is Gori’s first full-length directorial effort. The story is a comedy set in Okinawa, where both he and Natsukawa are originally from. Natsukawa plays the part of a mysterious fortune teller.

Natsukawa is also singing the film’s theme, titled ‘Unju no Furusato.’ Gori wrote the lyrics, while Kiroro’s Chiharu Tamashiro (also an Okinawan) composed the music.

‘Minami no Shima no Furimun’ will have its first screening at the Okinawa International Movie Festival, organized by Yoshimoto Kogyo. The festival runs from March 19 to March 22.

  1. @norstarguy: The marriage was registered on January 1, 2009. Rimi’s husband is a percussionist (Akira Tamaki) who has toured with her, the J-rock band Tube, among other music acts. I couldn’t find any pics of the two together but if you’re interested, here’s a link to his website: http://www.terra.dti.ne.jp/~tomoyama/tama.html.
