In Japanese with English subtitles.

A story celebrating the hidden joys and minutiae of Japanese culture. Winner of the Best Actor award at Cannes 2023, Koji Yakusho (Babel, 13 Assassins) 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.
An elderly man and young girl gaze up at the sky.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 unstereotypical 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®.

The elderly gent in a poorly lit room sits under a small lamp reading.

‘Wim Wenders concentrates on the quiet routine moments in the life of a Tokyo toilet cleaner in a delicate, meditative film that adapts the director’s documentary approach to a fictional subject.’- British Film Institute

‘Life experience spills out of 68-year-old lead Kōji Yakusho, his performance a masterclass in nuance.’- Empire ★★★★
