Miyake ShoEmoto Tasuku, Sometani Shota, Ishibashi Shizuka

Japan / 2018 / Japanese / 107 minutes / DCP

Aimless youth drift towards love and maturity in Miyake Sho’s naturalistic, quietly illuminating slacker film. Emoto Tasuku stars as an unnamed protagonist whose lazy worldview is subtly challenged when his girlfriend Sachiko (Ishibashi Shizuka) meets his unemployed roommate Shizuo (Sometani Shota). Based on a 1982 novel by the late Sato Yasushi, whose writing inspired Sketches of Kaitan City (2010) and The Light Shines Only There (2014), this unhurried comedy-drama charmingly captures the idyllic digressions and restless brooding of youth belatedly approaching adulthood.
