All Around Us

DIRECTOR: Ryosuke Hashiguchi - Japan

"This wise and deliciously witty film chronicles eight years of a marriage.  In 1992, shoe repairman Kanao ties the knot with Shoko, who works in publishing, because he's got her pregnant.  Apart from liking each other, they don't have too much in common.  She's a bit of a control freak, and he's, well, loose and easy-going.  Kanao takes over a TV news job as a courtroom sketch-artist and he soon finds himself exposed to--and drawing--some of the most disturbed people in Japan, from child murderers to a member of the Aum sect which gas-attacked the Tokyo subway.  Meanwhile Shoko, traumatized by a miscarriage, begins to fall apart; she needs to retreat from her job and from Tokyo to recover her equilibrium.  Through it all Hashiguchi gets right to the heart of what it takes for two people to nurture each other and hold it all together." --Vancouver Film Festival. 

Filmography: A Secret Evening (89), Touch of Fever (93), Like Grains of Sand (95), Hush (01).
