Perfect Days

An absorbing slice-of-life drama led by a remarkable Kôji Yakusho performance, Perfect Days adds a quietly soaring gem to director/co-writer Wim Wenders' estimable filmography.

Hirayama lives a life of blissful contentment, spending his days balancing his job as a caretaker of Tokyo’s public toilets with his passion for music, literature, and photography. His structured routine is slowly interrupted by unexpected encounters that force him to reconnect with his past.

‘Without Yakusho, it would still be the German filmmaker’s strongest narrative feature in 30 years... With him, this small, unassuming tale turns into the kind of earthshaking character study that reminds us why we go to the movies in the first place.’ David Fear, Rolling Stone

‘A sweet and sad slice-of-life about the comfort and sorrow of solitary repetition, buoyed by a Yakusho performance that rightly earned him the Best Actor prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.’ Nick Schager, The Daily Beast

‘Perfect Days is a poem of extraordinary subtlety and beauty.’ Alissa Wilkinson, Vox
