Perfect Days (PG)

Oscar Week 2024

A cleaner goes about his everyday routine in this poetic film that is nominated for Best International Feature Film at the Oscars.

Hirayama is a cleaner in Tokyo's public toilets and seems content with a simple, structured routine. In his private life he indulges his passion for music (there's a stellar soundtrack of 60s and 70s tunes), books and nature – he is particularly fond of trees and likes to take photos of them. Perfect Days combines four short stories and stars Kōji Yakusho (Memoirs of a Geisha, Babel) in the main role.

Directed by Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire, Paris, Texas), from a script written by Wenders and Takuma Takasaki, the film competed for the Palme d'Or at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.
