  • Description

    One of the most acclaimed figures in modern Japanese cinema, Naoimi Kawase followed up her remarkable 2014 Still in the Water with Sweet Bean [AN], a small-town drama of culinary redemption, which opened the prestigious Un Certain Regard strain of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.

    Struggling street food vendor Sentaro (Masatoshi Nagase) finds himself confronted with Tokue (Kirin Kiki), an odd but sympathetic elderly lady looking for work. When he reluctantly accepts, it's not long before Tokue proves to have an extraordinary gift when it comes to making "an" - the sweet red bean paste filling used in his dorayakis - which starts a relationship that is much more than just street food.

    With Sweet Bean, Kawase again focuses on people at the periphery of Japanese society and investigates their place in the flow of life itself. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the film for the first time in the UK.

    Special Features:

    • High Definition presentation on the Blu-ray
    • Optional English Subtitles
    • A new, exclusive video interview with Naomi Kawase
    • Theatrical trailer
    • A 32-page booklet featuring a new essay on the film by critic Philip Kemp; an interview and statement from Kawase, and production images
