Sawako Decides

10 Feb 201113 Feb 2011

From the opening colonic irrigation scene, it's clear that Sawako Decides will be one of the more unusual Japanese films of the year. In fact, in a year in which the creativity in Japanese mainstream cinema all but curled up and died, it's a real stand-out: a joyous, nuanced, comic drama about female empowerment.

Dir Yuya Ishii, Japan 2009, 112 mins, subtitles, 35mm, recommended cert 15
