A deep drama depicting the fears of a modern-day society, next month’s Japanese film at Massey University, portrays the distress of the family of a juvenile criminal and the conflicts of the detective ordered to protect them.
A 15-year-old school girl is picked up by the police when her 18-year-old brother is arrested on suspicion of a double murder. Saori is put under the protection of a dedicated yet conflicted police detective who has orders to shield the girl from the inevitable public outrage that is to follow. Through these two protagonists’ eyes, we get a glimpse into the vulnerability, the isolation and even the resilience of the individual when up against a volatile and often intolerant world.
Nobody to Watch Over Me will screen at Massey University’s Auckland campus at Albany on Wednesday July 4. The monthly Japanese films play on the first Wednesday of the month, at 6.15pm. Preceding the main feature is a short documentary on life and culture in Japan, which starts at 6pm. Unless specified, the films are screened in the Atrium Round Room on the ground floor of the Atrium Building. There is free parking available on campus.
Director: Kimizuka Ryoichi
