After a successful local premiere attended by local celebrities and media personalities last October 3, highly acclaimed Japanese film “Monster” is now showing in Philippine cinemas.

Nathan Studios, a production company under the ownership of the Atayde family, now stands as an active player in the world of entertainment, dedicated to pushing the boundaries of storytelling. Across a diverse range of projects, encompassing series, films, and live events, the studio consistently brings forth narratives that challenge the status quo and deeply resonate with its audience. Under the leadership of actress Ria Atayde, the company has delivered a string of remarkable productions, including titles like “Cattleya Killer,” “Misis Piggy,” and “Topakk.”

Award-winning actresses Sylvia Sanchez and Lorna Tolentino

During a recent trip to the Cannes Film Festival, Nathan Studios teamed up with award-winning actress Lorna Tolentino and 888 Films International to secure the rights to the Japanese drama film “Monster.” Directed by the visionary Hirokazu Kore-eda and penned by the talented Yuji Sakamoto, “Monster” is no ordinary dramatic offering. It clinched the prestigious Best Screenplay award at Cannes, bearing testament to the intricate craftsmanship of storytelling at its finest.

For director Kore-eda, “Monster” represents a significant milestone in his career, marking the first time he has helmed a film not of his own writing since “Maborosi” in 1995. Furthermore, the film’s musical score holds a cherished place in cinematic history, for it serves as the final project of the legendary Ryuichi Sakamoto, who tragically succumbed to cancer just two months before the film’s release. In essence, “Monster” stands as a poignant tribute to his enduring legacy.
