A glorious film from revered director Wim Wenders with an exceptional soundtrack following the quiet life of a middle-aged man in Tokyo. Winner Best Actor at Cannes 2023.
Hirayama seems utterly content with his simple life as a cleaner of toilets in Tokyo. Outside of his very structured everyday routine he enjoys his passion for music and books, along with trees and taking photos. A series of unexpected encounters gradually reveal more of his past. A deeply moving and poetic reflection on finding beauty in the everyday world around us.
Audience note: film is screened in Japanese with English Subtitles.
