Winner of the Best Actor award at Cannes 2023, Koji Yakusho (Babel, 13 Assassins) stars as Hirayama, a contemplative middle-aged man who lives a life of modesty and serenity, spending his days balancing his job as a dutiful caretaker of Tokyo’s numerous public toilets with his passion for music, literature and photography. As we join him on his structured daily routine, a series of unexpected encounters gradually begin to reveal a hidden past that lies behind his otherwise content and harmonious life.

A profound, life-affirming gem, Perfect Days is poetic cinema at its very finest, transforming the mundanity of daily routine into an outlook-changing ode to the joyous wonders of the quotidian. Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire) remains an absolute master of cinema, showcasing a radiant lead performance by beloved Japanese actor Koji Yakusho.
