Horikita Maki(堀北真希)’s “back nude” scene from “Byakuyako/白夜行”

Japanese movie news site eiga.com has released a small clip of the upcoming movie, “Byakuyako/白夜行” (“Into the White Night”), which features lead actress Horikita Maki/堀北真希 in three completely different scenes.

The movie is based on a best-selling novel by Higashino Keigo, which already had a drama adaptation aired back in 2006. ’Yukiho’ (Horikita) is a very beautiful woman who does not hesitate to trick others into great misfortune, starting with an unsolved case of murder that happened during her childhood.

The first two scenes in the clip are of Horikita as a school girl and as a grown-up woman, both of which are uninteresting compared to the third scene, which is a slightly-extended version of her infamous “back nude” scene (as hinted in an earlier trailer).

For this scene, Yukiho seen is taking off her white nightgown, offering the audience a great look at her beautiful pure white back. Afterwards, she gets on the bed and forcefully presses down on ‘Shinozuka Mika’ (Koike Ayame), the daughter of her second husband. The short clip ends with some pseudo-caressing by Yukiho.

In the novel, that scene could easily be described as a rape, so it will be interesting to see how far they will be going for the moments between taking off her nightgown and the caress. The generous exposure of the back alone is already getting interpreted as a big challenge, and a huge change for the “pure” actress Horikita. We’ve reported earlier about the possibility of additional controversial scenes that would be included in the movie, but we’ll see if they make it to the final cut.
