A modern classic about the beauty of being in a state of desiring and the impact a phallic injury can have on the ability of a subject to fall in love.

In Shiraishi’s talented hands the narrative transforms into a visual elegant and compelling examination of the desire that drives us all.

“This might be the purest idol-film Obayashi made and the clearest example of how Kadokawa wanted to exploit the audio-visual medium.”

Skeleton Flowers (2021) review

A serene narrative that touchingly explores the possibility of reaching each other as subject despite the misrecognition that structures speech.

A fabulous narrative that does not only delivers a thrilling slasher-like experience, but offers a touching romance between two people that are, in their own particular way, deeply marked by their traumatic past.

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.
