Dreaming In Between (Nigekireta Yume)
A life-changing situation leaves a high school vice principal taking stock of his life and reassessing the relationships he has with family, friends and students.
One of the gems from this years’ ACID Cannes, Ryutaro Ninomiya’s fourth film is a gentle study of a flawed middle-aged man, featuring a subtly brilliant performance from veteran actor Ken Mitsuishi (Takeshi Kitano’s Outrage Trilogy) as the protagonist Shuhei, contemplating his future whilst reflecting on his past. A beautiful, quiet film which will affect you as much with what is not said as what is. SE
