What is the film about? Taeko (Fumino Kimura) and her husband Jiro (Kento Nagayama) are living a peaceful existence with her young son, when a tragic accident brings the boy’s long-lost father Park (Atom Sunada) back into her life. To cope with her pain and guilt, Taeko throws herself into helping her ex-husband, who is deaf and homeless. Written and directed by Koji Fukada (A GIRL MISSING, HARMONIUM), LOVE LIFE is a moving meditation on grief and acceptance, with a touch of humor and melodrama in the vein of filmmakers Pedro Almodóvar and Douglas Sirk.
Love Life opens on August 25 at the Laemmle Monica in Santa Monica. For more information about the film, visit Oscilloscope.net.
