F Rated Film
Friday 19th May 2023 - Thursday 25th May 2023

Dir. Chie Hayakawa, Japan/Philippines, 2022, 113 mins, Japanese with English subtitles. Cast. Chieko Baisho, Hayato Isomura, Stefanie Arianne.

Japan’s submission for this year’s Oscars, is set in a chilling, near future in which the country has gone to extreme lengths to manage its ageing population and consequent economic distress. ‘Plan 75’ is the government’s new programme, in which citizens aged 75+ are invited to be voluntarily euthanised, receiving a small payment for their (self) sacrifice, but there’s mission creep afoot, as within 10 years, people 65 and over will become eligible for the opportunity too.

Recalling films like Never Let Me Go and Children of Men in its uncanny grounding of a disquieting dystopian vision in an otherwise recognisable world, Plan 75 is both a provocative critique of a society so in thrall to market forces it loses its humanity, and a beautifully tender yet unsentimental character study.
