Metro Weekend Event: Last stop is Japan!
This film is in Japanese with English subtitles to tell the story of an old man meeting a young woman in Tokyo. It is a film that competed in Cannes Film Festival and Sundance should speaks of its quality. Watch the trailer and you will get a glimpse of the film's cinematography and softness/fragility of the film's central characters.
If there is interest, I am open to having coffee/drinks after the film.
I will be at the theatre at 2:10pm just inside the first set of doors. Depending on the weather, I may wear a black hoodie or a black long coat.
Background info on the Director:
I am not familiar with the Director's work, but Abbas Kiarostami is an acclaimed Iranian filmmaker involved in screenwriting, directing and producing. He is famous for his Koker Trilogy. I found part 2 "Life and Nothing More" of the series on YouTube with English subtitles and it was beautifully filmed in Iran about the search of a Father (filmmaker) and his son of the two kids that previously starred in Part 1 "Where is the Friend's Home?" after an earthquake that killed 30,000 people in 1990.
