Rare treats

A wonderful collection of shorts, visually pleasing, fun to watch and from time to time refreshingly weird.

Matsuo is growing as a director. Welcome To The Quiet Room is in improvement on his previous films in every respect.

Solid pieces

A Farewell to Jinu

Suzuki Matsuo features Ryuhei Matsuda and Fumi Nikaido in his latest comedy. The film itself didn't quite meet my expectations, but it's a fun and quirky movie regardless. Matsuo is truly one of a kind and the rural Japanese setting combined with slightly fantastical elements makes for a unique experience.
