Perfect Days (PG)

Perfect Days

A janitor in Japan drives between jobs listening to rock music in this absorbing slice-of-life drama which adds a quietly soaring gem to director Wim Wenders' estimable filmography.

Hirayama (Kôji Yakusho) 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 for books. A series of unexpected encounters gradually reveal more of his past. This is a movie about art, exploring how in the midst of chaos, it’s not labour but the physical objects of beauty that we weave into our lives - paperback novels, cassette tapes of favourite albums, carefully tended bonsai plants, a perfectly framed photograph - that structure and give our days meaning. A deeply moving reflection on finding beauty in the everyday world around us. A poem of extraordinary subtlety and beauty led by a remarkable performance by Yakusho. Not to be missed. (Subtitles)
