UP FOR OUR UPDATES NOW!
spunky indie revolves around an independent young woman who faces an alienating
world with her own set of values and relationships. Makoto does not lead a “good”
life. She hates her family, dates a married man, and moonlights as a phone sex
operator. Though she is busy everyday with work and rituals, she has no idea where
her meaningless life is heading. Then one day, a good man, as kind and grounded
as they come, enters her life and tries to straighten things out.
the director: SODE Yukiko, born in Nagano prefecture in 1983, began her studies
in 2002, participating at the film workshop by Testuo SHINOHARA. Today she works
as an independent filmmaker while working part-time.
Notes: A fine example of what is possible with DV when you have a strong script
and something to say about the world around you.
