Nobody Knows (12A) – 2004, Japan, subs, 141 mins
Director: Hirokazu Kore-edu
Yūya Yagira was the youngest recipient of the Best Actor award at Cannes for his performance here as a young boy forced to care for his siblings after they’re abandoned by their mother.
This docu-drama is based on a real 1988 event. In this fictional retelling, 12-year-old Akira has to look after his siblings when his mother absconds, leaving them in a tiny apartment with just a few thousand yen. As Akira struggles to keep the family going, the children gradually slip into a dreamlike existence of unlimited playtime, instant noodles, and confused distress. Kore-eda crafts this real-life story into a moving drama about the loss of childhood innocence. With improvised performances and four non-professional child actors, it’s a dazzling technical achievement.
Doors open for fine wines and all manner of drinks at 7pm. Film at 8pm
