GOOD MORNING TO THE WORLD

DIRECTOR: Hirohara Satoru - JAPAN

High school boy Takahashi Yuta is effectively bringing himself up alone. His father is long gone, and his mother is constantly off on trips, leaving him notes and modest amounts of cash to keep himself fed. Not surprisingly, he’s a bit of a loner at school. But he’s fascinated by (identifies with?) the vagrant man who sleeps in a road tunnel near his home, and when that man is killed—apparently by a gang of local delinquents—he sets off on a quest to find the dead man’s family and friends, following clues in the man’s bag. “This debut feature from Hirohara Satoru offers a very fresh take on the rite-of-passage theme; there’s not a cliché in sight.”—Tony Rayns. (81 mins.)

First Feature Film.

Winner, Dragons and Tigers New Director Award, Vancouver Film Festival.
