PART OF THE JAPAN TOURING PROGRAMME

Pale Moon

Kami no Tsuki

Dir. Daihachi Yoshida
Japan, 126 min, 2014, subtitled

Director, Daihachi Yoshida offers another absorbing melodrama with this devilishly delightful tale set in 1994, shortly after the catastrophic popping of Japan’s 1980s bubble economy.

Young housewife Rika longs for an end to austerity, both financial and sexual. But things change when office gossip about affairs and embezzlement inspire Rika to do the unthinkable. Soon, Rika finds herself filling the void with a university student named Kota and the millions entrusted to her by clients. Is her newfound lifestyle the key to happiness?

With a muted color palate, great soundtrack, and an almost sensual emphasis on the physicality of money, Pale Moon cements Yoshida’s importance in contemporary Japan’s cinematic landscape.

Winner of multiple awards at Tokyo Film Festival and screened to at across the world.
