    < Sister Theresa > Hirota Léona

As the first Japanese student to enroll in Belgium's National     Academy of Arts "MUDRA," she spent three years studying ballet    and other arts; through this process she obtained a thorough grounding in method acting. Active mainly in film and television, in 1991 she acted in Suzuki Seijun's "Yumeji " and in Sakamoto          Junji's "Checkmate," for which she received the Best Supporting Actress award at the Yokohama Film Festival. Other film     appearences include Bando Tamasaburo's "Operating Room," (92) Wakamatsu Koji's "Endless Waltz," (95) Koichi Saito's "Bara Hotel," (96) and the French film "Milles bornes." In 2000 she      directed "Drug Garden." In the role of Theresa, torn between the demands of ethics and of the body, she delivers a performance          replete with solemn beauty.
