HOLD ME BACK

You can watch the film anytime during the festival (June 5th - 27th) however there is 48 hour viewing period after you initially click “play”.

Audience Choice Award winner at the Tokyo International Film Festival, this charming comedy-drama traces the clumsy love life of 31-year-old Mitsuko who thoroughly enjoys being single.

Her life is complicated by her inner voice and advisor she calls “A”. When Mitsuko meets Tada-kun, a younger guy who works in sales she decides to take action, all the while baffled by her inability to be bold and reckless like she was in her twenties. Should she followed A’s advice? Take a trip to Rome? Let romance bloom?

Director Ohku also won the Audience Award at TIFF Tokyo 2017 for Tremble All You Want, and here she again delivers a quirky, heartfelt tale of awkward love featuring a winning central performance by one of Japan’s leading young actresses.
