Synopsis
Kuro Ueki would have liked to be a baker, but she’s fired from the bread boutique where she works for being too lazy and eating too many buns. In the streets of Tokyo she meets Gou, another aimless being, a womaniser and theatre director whose latest production is on hold after losing its main actress. Soon also Eito shows up, a photographer who has just split up with his girlfriend, who is tired of waiting to get married. They have nothing in common but their absolute lack of roots, and the young Tokyo threesome decide to go to an abandoned hotel in Oshima, right by the sea. There they find the ideal setting to enact a sort of collective and playful daydream, a little bit eccentric and away from the realities of life they so much want to keep far from. They don’t speak much, they don’t need to. They let things flow almost with the ethereal logic of a mischievous light dream.
Director bio Daisuke Shimote was born in 1976 in Gifu, Japan. She studied in the Universities of Nihon and Waseda, where she drafted a research paper on director Yasujiro Ozu. Kuro is his first feature.
