Love At Least
Nippon Cinema ª
Suffering from depression and hypersomnia, Yasuko almost never leaves the house, while her boyfriend Tsunaki provides for a living. Things begin to change with the unexpected arrival of Tsunaki’s ex-girlfriend, who is desperate to win him back. Shot on highly aesthetic 16mm film, LOVE AT LEAST is an authentic observation on mental illness in Japan – a topic that continues to be stigmatized.
