The film website Twitch reported on Tuesday that this year's Toronto International Film Festival will host the North American premiere of the live-action film adaptation of Mari Yamazaki's Thermae Romae manga. The festival will also screen Takeshi Kitano's live-action film Outrage Beyond, sequel to the 2010 yakuza film Outrage. The 37th Toronto International Film Festival will take place at theaters in Toronto, Ontario from September 6 to 16.
The comedy manga and film adaptation center on Lucius — an architect of public bath houses (thermae) in ancient Rome — who time-travels to various modern-day baths in Japan. Through manga and essay passages, Yamazaki explores the two cultures in the world "that have loved baths the most: the Japanese and the Romans!"
