Naked Masahiro Motoki & The Departures ( おくりびと: Okuribito )

Hey hey...Recently i managed to get a copy of The Departures ( おくりびと: Okuribito ) DVD, a 2008 Japanese film, from my beloved Horny BF. It was a surprised, but a well-deserved Oscar winner of The Best Foreign Language Film in the 2009 Academy Awards. It was shown in GSC's International Screens a few months back but i didn't manage to watch it.

It's a delightful movie about a cellist ( played by Masahiro Motoki ) who has just lost his job when his ochestra group was disbanded. Unable to cope with it, he decided to move back to his hometown. Over there, he spotted an Ad job and decided to try his luck. Little did he know, he was hired immediately ( without knowing what's the job is ) and after much persuasion from the owner, he decided to take the job of "encoffinment" -- a japanese ceremonial procedure of preparing, dressing & praying for the corpse before putting them in the coffin. So, along the way, he has his ups & downs with his inner self, family & friends.

It is an enlightening movie with beautiful music & scenic background of rural Japan -- Thanks to the excellent cinematographer. It also touches the heart of the viewers with it's many poignant & heartwarming scenes ( again -- it manages to melt Simon Lover's infamous, Heart Of Steel...sob sob..) and of course, it is imbued with some comedic antics here & there, making the lead actor looking very very cute in this role!

"A story of love, of discovery, of revelation and of the transcending human spirit, "Departures" will linger in your heart and mind long after viewing."

So, due to my curious nature, i decided to find out more about the Lengjai lead actor, Masahiro Motoki ( 本木雅弘 ) !


Birthdate : 21 Dec 1965 ( 44 years old d still yet so sexy! )
Nickname : Mok-kun
Status : Married with two kids

Started his career way back in 1982 as one of the members of the popular 80's Boyband Group, Shibugakitai. Good looks & chiseled cheekbones also led him to the world of fashion modeling.( You can read more of his Biography in wikipedia & Big In Japan ). He also won numerous award for his film acting careers, be it at the movies or dramas. He also done alot of commercials and he's one of the longest spokeperson for Mandom / Gatsby even till now.

"For a young boy with a flair for calligraphy ( his work featured on the calendar for the 24th Para-Olympic Games in Nagano 1988 ), Motoki has certainly come a long way and no doubt he will continue to develop as an actor long after the boyish looks that first brought him fame begin to fade" - Matt Welch, Big In Japan..

Back in 1991, he appeared nude in a nude photo book, White Rooms, by critically-acclaimmed, japanese photographer, Shinoyama Kishin. So, without further a due, i present to you...Some of the pictures i managed to find from the net ( You must rmbr, it was way back in 1991 when internet wasn't very alive back then...He was only 26yo back then. But, now at 44 yo, he still look as dashing as ever and there are a few nude scenes in The Departures as well! )












Very sexy isn't it?!!!!

.....And now we compare his body, now at the age of 44 years old versus 26 yo for the pics above..........

( if you notice, quite a lot of Jap actors are not ashamed of going nude in shower scenes as compared to our HK, Taiwan counterparts! Sigh )
