Perfect Days

2h 4m Drama 2023

Wim Wenders’ poetic portrait of a quiet Tokyo janitor who finds contentment through routine and the simplest of pleasures.

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.

“This beguiling film may trade in the tranquil security of routine, but makes an occasional, heart-quickening case for the unexpected.” ~Guy Lodge, Variety

“The director has crafted a film of deceptive simplicity, observing the tiny details of a routine existence with such clarity, soulfulness and empathy that they build a cumulative emotional power almost without you noticing.” ~David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
