Perfect Days (PG)

Friday 5th April 2024 - Thursday 11th April 2024

Dir. Wim Wenders, Germany/Japan, 2023, 125 mins, in Japanese with English subtitles. Cast. Koji Yakusho, Tokio Emoto, Arisa Nakano.

A highly anticipated return to fiction feature filmmaking from Wim Wenders, Perfect Days tells a story celebrating the hidden joys and minutiae of Japanese culture. Winner of the Best Actor award at Cannes 2023, Koji Yakusho stars as Hirayama, a contemplative middle-aged man who lives a life of modesty and serenity, spending his days balancing his job as a dutiful caretaker of Tokyo’s numerous public toilets with his passion for music, literature and photography. As we join him on his structured daily routine, a series of unexpected encounters gradually begin to reveal a hidden past that lies behind his otherwise content and harmonious life.

Combining a refreshingly non-stereotypical depiction of the Japanese capital with a soundtrack comprised of iconic hits from the 60s and 80s, this is a subtle, shimmering and ultimately life-affirming reflection on finding beauty in the everyday world around us.

Nominated for the Best International Film award at the 96th Academy Awards.
