[ Story ]

The latest film from director Shiota Akihiko, whose Harmful Insect was selected for the competition section at the 2001 Venice Film Festival.
In a Japanese city, people are coming back from the dead exactly as they were in life - a resurrection phenomenon. Kawada Heita (Kusanagi Tsuyoshi), originally from the affected area, is sent by the government to investigate. He reunites with Tachibana Aoi (Takeuchi Yuko), whom he has secretly loved for a long time. Heita is distressed by Aoi's continuing love for her fiancé who passed away in an accident. He soon finds out that Aoi herself has already been killed in an accident, and that the resurrected only stay alive for three weeks before returning to heaven. Heita decides to bring Aoi's fiancé back to life, but time is slipping away. Desperate, Heita runs to Aoi and she tells him that he is the only one she truly loves now and then disappears.
Intended only for a 3-week release in Japan, Resurrection's great popularity led to a long and successful theatrical run.
