Evil Does Not Exist Aku Wa Sonzai Shinai 「悪は存在しない」

DIRECTED BY Ryûsuke Hamaguchi 監督:濱口竜介

SYNOPSIS

『ドライブ・マイ・カー』の濱口竜介監督が描く、人間と自然界との永遠の対立を描いたエコ・スリラー。幼い娘と自然の中で暮らし生計を立てている地元の便利屋、タクミ。この平穏な村に、東京の企業が高級グランピング・サイトを建設する計画を発表したことで、この田舎の平穏な生活は脅かされる。『悪は存在しない』は、私たちを取り巻く世界と人間の複雑な関係を明らかにしていく。

Following his international sensation Drive My Car, filmmaker Ryusuke Hamaguchi returns with a captivating eco-thriller that explores the eternal conflict between the natural world and the human urge to destroy it. Set in the peaceful northern village of Harasawa, the film follows Takumi, a local handyman who lives with his young daughter and makes his living chopping wood, hauling water, and doing odd jobs around town. The tranquility of this rural life is threatened, however, when a Tokyo company announces plans to construct a high-end glamping site near the village. The venture is met with skepticism from the townspeople, who worry that the development will irreparably damage the natural environment — and, by extension, their very existence. Expertly scripted and directed with an eye for human duality, Evil Does Not Exist ponders our complicated relationship with the world around us.

Monster Kaibutsu 「怪物」

DIRECTED BY Hirokazu Kore-eda 監督・是枝裕和

SYNOPSIS


大きな湖のある郊外の町。息子を愛するシングルマザー、生徒思いの学校教師、そして無邪気な子供たち。それは、よくある子供同士のケンカに見えた。しかし、彼らの食い違う主張は次第に社会やメディアを巻き込み、大事になっていく。そしてある嵐の朝、子供たちは忽然と姿を消した―。母親、教師、そして子どもの目を通して物語が展開するにつれ、驚愕の事実が明らかになっていく。坂本龍一の幽玄なサウンドトラックが世界観を象徴する。

In the opening scenes of Hirokazu Kore-eda’s latest masterwork, a three-alarm fire engulfing a building evokes the many small sparks that have ignited a culture of gossip, stigma, fear, and silence in a coastal community. When her young son Minato starts to behave strangely, his mother Saori feels that there is something wrong. Discovering that Minato’s teacher, Mr. Hori is responsible for the boy’s odd behavior, she storms into the school demanding to know what’s going on. But answers — much less accountability — remain elusive as Mr. Hori denies all accusations. Minato and his fellow classmate Yori remain tight-lipped and evasive. As the story unfolds through the eyes of mother, teacher, and then child, the truth gradually emerges. Directing for the first time from a script not entirely his own (co-written by industry veteran Sakamoto Yuji), Chicago International Film Festival favorite Kore-eda expertly pieces together an exquisite narrative mosaic, journeying down three separate paths and perspectives that converge in an inexorable climax. Celebrated composer Ryuichi Sakamoto provides the ethereal soundtrack.

Perfect Days 


第76回カンヌ国際映画祭最優秀男優賞

主演:役所広司 DIRECTED BY Wim Wenders 監督:ヴィム・ヴェンダース

SYNOPSIS

東京・渋谷でトイレの清掃員として働く平山は、変化に乏しいながらも充実した日々を送っていた。 同じような日々を繰り返すだけのように見えるものの、彼にとっては毎日が新鮮で小さな喜びに満ちている。 古本の文庫を読むことと、フィルムカメラで木々を撮影するのが趣味の平山は、いつも小さなカメラを持ち歩いていた。ある日、家族から逃げてきた姪が突然訪ねてきた。ふたりは絆を深め、日常の美しさを分かち合うことに喜びを感じるようになる。 Living a life of solitary, quiet contentment, a middle-aged public toilet cleaner (Kôji Yakusho) spends his days working, reading, listening to cassette tapes, and tending to his indoor garden. The satisfying rhythms of his life are interrupted when his niece, fleeing her family, arrives for an unexpected visit. The two begin to bond, relishing their ability to share in the beauty of the everyday. Featuring a stellar soundtrack and a warm, grounded performance from Yakusho, Perfect Days is at once a love letter to the city of Tokyo, an open-hearted character study, and an irresistible, charm-filled exaltation of the profound pleasures of a simple life.
