Perfect Days

A janitor in Japan drives between jobs listening to rock music

Nominated for Best International Feature - 2024 OSCARS

Hirayama seems utterly content with his simple life as a cleaner of toilets in Tokyo. Outside of his very structured everyday routine he enjoys his passion for music and for books. And he loves trees and takes photos of them. A series of unexpected encounters gradually reveal more of his past. A deeply moving and poetic reflection on finding beauty in the everyday world around us.

"The wisdom and poetry here are just as real and just as thoroughly felt."

"A sweet and sad slice-of-life about the comfort and sorrow of solitary repetition, buoyed by a Yakusho performance that rightly earned him the Best Actor prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival." -The Daily Beast
