Kah Wai LIM リム・カーワイ

Your Lovely Smile

Nippon Visions   ½ 

In his laconic comedies, indie director Hirobumi WATANABE has created his own cinematic universe. However, his films are far from being box office hits. With WATANABE playing himself in Kah Wai LIM’s road movie, the film provides both a good dose of self-mockery and an urgent plea to support independent filmmaking and Japan’s dying cinema culture.
