Remembering Every Night

Dir. Yui Kiyohara
116 min

Three women wander through a Tokyo suburb, and cross paths briefly but profoundly on a gorgeous summer’s day. Yui Kiyohara’s lyrical film captures, with Proustian detail, these women’s lives.

One woman is a meter reader, another a college student out for a stroll, the other an older woman seeking work but also seeking, well, nothing but the pleasure of the outdoors. Their quiet aspirations may not be the things of high drama, but they resonate with a peaceful clarity. Kiyohara’s luscious film follows these three as they cross paths now and again, or on their own or… at times when the camera just takes in the world, proving that joy can be found even in the most faceless suburb.
