Japanese Girls Never Die 18

Thu 1 Mar, 6.20pm


Synopsis

Adapted from the novel "Haruko Azumi Is Missing" (2013) by Mariko Yamauchi, Daigo Matsui’s film is a kaleidoscopic, pop-art portrait of the female condition in Japan – expressed through intertwined stories around the disappearance of Haruko.

One of the best Japanese films of 2016, the two central female characters Matsui and Yamauchi tackle the patriarchal culture of their country with a ferocity and remarkable candor, offering us on the one hand, a scathing image of their society, and on the other, a sincere celebration of all the resilient, immortal young women of Japan, faced with the inequalities that afflict them on a daily basis.

Dir: Daigo Matsui

Cast: Yu Aoi, Mitsuki Takahata, Taiga, Shono Hayama, Huwie Ishizaki, Ryo Kase
