A new wind envelops me now♪ Holding the pleasure in my heart, well the movie time♪

Yes, I’ve now determined to watch a movie basking in a new wind. Oh, what a comfortable wind it is! When wrapped by this wind, my heartbeats will become faster. Are you here, Uplink?

This movie theater is a mini-theater which delivers a new film culture through a wide variety of films that are different from commercially based films or so-called “interesting entertainment films. It is a rare movie theater in Kyoto that shows “good movies” with no misses. Although compact in size, it is actually a place that screens a large number of quality films. And sometimes they even re-screen classic films, which is a very valuable place for movie lovers.


The film I watched today in such a movie theater was this film.

The story depicts a high school girl who, for one reason or another, has stopped going to school, and as she works part-time as an advisor for end-of-life activities, she comes into contact with the thoughts and feelings of various people who are trying to live their lives, and gradually, little by little, she faces up to her own life and tries to move forward.

The performance and presence of Akira Takarada, a famous actor who recently passed away, also made for a very memorable film. And this is an end-of-life story that is even more memorable because it seems to have the aspect of being a film about Ms. Takarada herself. I honestly felt it was a very good movie.

There are still a lot of good-looking movies playing at this cinema!

Mwah! This one looks interesting too!

“The idea that what sells is better is crap.”
Is this a biographical film about that legendary musician, Frank Zappa the Great? I’m looking forward to this.

So, if you are looking for a good movie, I highly recommend you try this place, Uplink Kyoto. It will surely be a good experience.
