“As linear as a road movie but uniquely structured to veer off the map, Miki’s bizarre vision is sweet, never saccharine, and too modest to boast its cunning.”
2007, 101 min, 35mm. Directed by Satoshi Miki. With Tomokazu Miura and Joe Odagiri. U.S. Premiere.
Best Supporting Actor for Tomokazu Miura in the 2007 Kinema Junpo Award.
When Fumiya, a law student, can not pay off his debts, collecting agent Aiichiro bullies him into taking a leisurely stroll through Tokyo–through the back allies, shrines, parks and restaurants where his deepest memories are kept. Director Satoshi Miki has woven together this strange journey of two men into a heart-warming comedy with a phenomenal ensemble cast.
