Director Shinichiro Ueda’s tiny indie production opened in two small cinemas but by positive word of mouth alone shot to the top of the box-office.
A low-budget zombie movie - shot in one take - turns real when actual zombies attack the crew. But then the film abruptly transforms into something entirely different: Japan’s smartest comedy of the year, a father-daughter story, a sharp film industry satire and a movie about the value of perseverance. Winner of film festival awards around the world. Starring Harumi Shuhama, Kazuaki Nagaya, Mao and Takayuki Hamatsu
