Part eco-thriller, part existentialist fable, Charisma exposes a sinister natural world beyond any environmentalist’s dreams. Koji Yakusho (Séance, Shall We Dance) stars a disgraced detective who flees Tokyo following a hostage disaster. Seeking solitude in the depths of a remote forest, he is confronted by a gnarled, sinister tree that evokes both wonder and fear in its human visitors. Torn between the forces seeking to protect the tree and those intent upon its destruction, Yakusho begins to lose his grip on reality. Can he redeem himself and “restore the rules of the world” before it’s too late?
