Hong Kong- and Amsterdam-based Fortissimo Films has picked up international rights to Paul Schrader’s 1985 classic “Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters,” with the aim of giving the investigative portrait a global re-release.

Produced by American Zoetrope, pic is a tribute to Japanese playwright Yukio Mishima who attempted an impossible harmony between self, art and society and committed ritual suicide in public.
