Yoake no Subete

U.S. Premiere. Based on Maiko Seo’s novel of the same name, All the Long Nights stars Mone Kamishiraishi as meek working professional Misa who suffers from an acute case of PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) that leaves her mercurial—resulting in workplace incidents, inevitably contributing to her inability to hold onto jobs. After five years of unsteady employment, Misa finds a sense of belonging in the quiet offices of Kurita Science Corp. assembling parts for children’s science kits, but her peace is disrupted by the solitary and anti-social Takatoshi (Hokuto Matsumura, Suzume), whose benign everyday rituals trigger her. Takatoshi, suffering from a severe panic disorder, shares a mutual difficulty in struggling to function in everyday life, and once the pair find the right footing, they compassionately push each other to live out “normal lives” despite their debilitating conditions. Shot on 16mm, director Sho Miyake’s (And Your Bird Can Sing, JC 2019) tender drama draws out a nuanced character study of the two, weaving together a deeply human story that shines through with the talents of its endearing leads.

Dir. Sho Miyake, 2024, 119 min., DCP, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. With Mone Kamishiraishi, Hokuto Matsumura, Ken Mitsuishi.
