Yoake no subete

All the Long Nights
Misa Fujisawa suffers from premenstrual syndrome; that’s what makes her lose it, against her nature, even when around her superiors. She changes her job and surroundings and five years later is working at Kurita Optics, who produce astronomic sets, packaging individual parts and buying her sweets for colleagues. Takatoshi Yamazoe sits next to her and is also much younger than the rest of the staff, becoming the object of her gentle manner and care – a strange, silent guy, plagued by panic attacks. Based on Maiko Seo’s novel of the same name and carried by the sounds of DJ Hi’Spec and the gestures and voices of the two fantastic leading actors, Shô Miyake’s cinematic universe has people find each other before finding themselves. Attempting to survive in a world full of pressure and stress, capital and tradition, they look for assistance from doctors, self-help groups and even the sick mother. From this realism of today, Miyake crafts a fairy tale scene by scene that could not be more enchanting. Between toy planetariums and long nights of starry skies, a pure poetry of kindness emerges. Two people who get closer without falling in love, so close that they do each other good.
