Looking For Cherry Blossoms

Directed by Joe Odagiri

A directorial debut of Joe Odagiri, featuring a remarkable collaboration by young stars of Japanese film and comedy!

Synopsis

Granddad is a little absented minded and living in the hospital, but almost everyday he receives a postcard depicting cherry blossoms. His grandson Tsuyoshi comes to visit him, and cannot help but notice these postcards from a mystery sender. One day, Tsuyoshi meets a taxi driver that knows the location of the cherry trees in the postcard. The grandson then sets out on a journey to find the location with this man called Jack.

Joe Odagiri, arguably Japan’s top actor today in terms of popularity and talent, has directed this long-anticipated film, casting the enormously popular young comedian, Junichi Kawamoto of Jicho Kacho, as the lead. The story produced by this unique combination cannot help but attract audiences. It is a precious film that offers the charm of new talent, while Joe Odagiri handles all four areas of direction, screenwriting, editing, and music.
