Hotori No Sakuko (Au Revoir L’été)

New Japanese cinema meets French New Wave in this languid summertime tale, full of subtle complexities.

Before 18-year-old Sakuko starts university, she visits her aunt, Mikie, in a seemingly sleepy Japanese coastal town. While Sakuko gets to know a young Fukushima refugee, Mikie meets up with her old flame, Ukichi, who now manages the local love motel.
