Film Still: Glasses


  •   Naoko Ogigami
  •   Japan

Uptight career woman Taeko arrives at the Hamada Inn for an unplugged beach vacation, but island life is nothing like she expected. Confronted with a cadre of eccentric locals with curious pastimes like “merci” exercises and “twilighting,” Taeko can’t wait to escape their quirky lifestyle fast enough. Or can she? This offbeat dramedy celebrates the joy of life’s simple delights. Japanese with subtitles.


Co-presented by the Japan Information Center at the Consulate-General of Japan in Chicago
