Wim Wenders’ profoundly moving PERFECT DAYS is the story of Hirayama (Cannes Best Actor winner Koji Yakusho), a public sanitation worker who spends his days keeping Tokyo’s public bathrooms clean. From his humble position, Hirayama is able to find meaning and joy in observing daily life in Tokyo, from the ups and downs of Tokyo’s youth to the simple pleasures found in the rhythms of the city. Filled with moments of profound human insight and an elegiac soundtrack (The Velvet Underground and Patti Smith feature prominently), PERFECT DAYS is Japan’s entry to this year’s Academy Awards®.
In Japanese with English subtitles.
