Hirobumi WATANABE 渡辺紘文

わたしは元気

Nippon Visions   ½ 

In Hirobumi WATANABE’s latest film, we follow third-grader Riko HISATSUGU through a more or less ordinary day in her life and witness heartwarming and hilarious moments. A light-hearted tragicomedy, underpinned by a subtle but serious message. With impressive performances by three young actors! Hirobumi WATANABE also directed an episode of the film KAMATA PRELUDE we are showing this year.
