Hirayama leads an unglamorous life as a Tokyo toilet cleaner, though he has found contentment in the simpler things like collecting classic rock cassettes, reading books, and photographing trees. His days have a Zen-like structure, ritually arising at dawn, going about his work, and devoting time to his pleasurable pursuits. This approach to life has not resulted in success as measured by the modern world, but it has given him wisdom and insight into what is truly important about Life. Things begin to change, however, as external events begin to have an impact on his sphere of contentment. Will his life unravel, or will he be able to wield his hard-won wisdom and impart it to the people who have come along to shake up his peaceful little world..?

From legendary director Wim Wenders, this latest film is a perfect slice of peace in these tumultuous times. Japanese actor Koji Yokusho (who has won the Best Actor award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival) stars in the lead role alongside Tokio Emoto and Arisa Nakano. Perfect Days has been nominated for a Best International Feature Film Oscar at this year’s Academy Awards, and will surely be an unforgettable addition to Wender’s illustrious cinematic career.
