As a part of Week of Japanese Film, the citizens of Sarajevo will have the opportunity to see a film directed by Tatsumi Kumashiro called ‘Love letters’ (Koibumi).
In this romantic and erotic drama, Oda has achieved a place in the world which makes him think that it would be appropriate for him to find a mistress. He is a well-known poet and is married. He selects Yuko, a girl still in school, and duly finds an apartment for her. However, he is seldom around, and she spends a lot of her time waiting for him to come around and make love to her. Their relationship is very uneven: she is not allowed to play around, while he carries on with a divorced woman next door. They almost have a child, but he insists on an abortion. Later, when he dies, she shows up at his funeral. Her presence there is unwelcome, though everyone knows who she is.
The film will be shown on 21 March at 8 p.m. in Meeting Point Cinema.
The entrance is free for all.
