An incredibly exquisite, artful and socially relevant film that will impact everyone who sees it.
The award-winning In This Corner of the World follows a young girl named Suzu Urano, a talented natural artist who, in 1944, moves to the small town of Kure near Hiroshima where she marries Shūsaku Hōjō – a young clerk who works at the local naval base. Living with his family, the big-hearted Suzu becomes essential to the running of the household.
In 1945, intense bombings by the US military finally reach Kure with devastating effect to the townsfolk and their way of life. Suzu’s life is changed irrevocably, but through perseverance and courage, she manages to continue to live life to the fullest. This beautiful yet tragic tale shows that even in the face of adversity and loss, people can come together and rebuild their lives.
The charming and cheerful character of Suzu highlights the noble spirit of the Japanese, making In This Corner of the World an uplifting coming-of-age story and a timeless classic.
