Joji Koyama & Tujiko Noriko – Kuro (2017)


Romi, a Japanese woman living in Paris, works in a karaoke bar. At home in the suburbs, she tends to her paraplegic lover Milou. To pass the time she recounts to him a story alluding to a period they once spent together in Japan.

A new film of bold form and deep humanity. Reminiscent of Resnais and Chris Marker, it tells two stories at once: one through images, the other through sound (co-director and composer Tujiko Noriko is an acclaimed musician). Both are linked by love, split in time and space.
