Ribbon (2022) review

Non, in short, proves with her first feature film that she has a future as screenwriter and director.

Straying (2022) review [Camera Japan 2022]

A pleasant and charming exploration of the fact that, within the game of love and romance and beyond, subjects often rely on acting-out to reveal to the other what they cannot put into signifiers.

Summer Time Machine Blues (2005)

A fantastic time-travel narrative that will not only please sci-fi fans but also please spectators who love Japanese comical narratives.

In Another Language (2021) review

An enjoyable indie romance narrative that elegantly plays with the fact that lie and truth are fundamentality interwoven within a subject’s speech.

Shaman’s Daughter (2022) review [JFFH 2022]

A genre mish-mash – a cocktail of light-hearted comedy, family drama, bloody thriller, and ghostly romance – that is not only pleasant but offers the spectator a rich emotional fabric to savour.

Masquerade Hotel (2019) review

A pleasant narrative that provides an interesting mystery, a nice exploration of hotel-philosophy, and offers an engaging dynamic between the two leads.

Popran (2022) review [22nd Nippon Connection]

“A great narrative that questions in a light-hearted way the relation between the male subject and his member as well as the role the real member plays within the fantasmatic world of men.”
