Nezunoban Unclassified 18+

Language: Japanese with English subtitles

View Trailer

Michael Beets (Those Left Waiting and Artefacts, MIFF 2021) depicts an elderly woman enacting the titular Japanese death ritual for her husband.

In Japan, the passing of a loved one is marked by ‘night watch’: staying up all night with the deceased, incense burning throughout, to ensure their safe passage to the afterlife. In Nezunoban, this experience is portrayed in patient detail – both comforting and confronting in its meticulousness – with a richly expressive, emotive central performance from Meiko Kaji of Lady Snowblood (1973) fame.
