After walking the red carpet on the opening night of the 30th Tokyo International Film Festival, Yu Aoi pointed out to the emcee that she and the other three “muses” of the festival — fellow actresses Sakura Ando, Hikari Mitsushima and Aoi Miyazaki — were all born in the same year, 1985, thus lending this year’s festival a generational point of reference.

However, Ando added that, according to the lunar calendar, 2017 is not a particularly “lucky” year for her cohort, so she hopes the festival — being held at Roppongi Hills — will make the best of it.
