Kōki Mitani (三谷 幸喜 Mitani Kōki?, born July 8, 1961) is a Japanese playwright, screenwriter, actor and film director. He was previously married to Japanese actress Satomi Kobayashi. In an attempt to add his own character to his movies, as a director he takes most of his scenes with a one-scene=one-shot system, moving the camera around as opposed to cutting. He claims this comes from his experience in theatre, where there are of course, no cuts. Mitani does not use a computer.[1]

Feature films and TV dramas[edit]

(Note: Many of Mitani's films began as successful plays.)
