    The Ruined City

    Ninth place (Top 10 Japanese Films of All Time), Kinema Junpo 1984

    “I’m nothing at all.”

    Date & Time: 19/12/2020 (Sat) 7:30pm
    Japan | 1983 | 105 mins | In Japanese with English subtitles | 16mm | Colour

    A university student visits a remote town famed for its canals in order to work on his undergraduate dissertation. He is immediately attracted to the young girl running the guesthouse in which he stays, and is enchanted by the constant sound of the waters. However, to the locals, this charming and laid-back small town is a dying and ruined city, and the large guesthouse and the family living within it are in a state of tragic decline. Obayashi Nobuhiko filmed this art film in two weeks during the summer holidays with a mini crew as well as the participation of local residents, and used 16mm film to capture the unique scenery of Yanagawa, successfully recreating the “private novel” atmosphere of Fukunaga Takehiko’s book upon which the film is based. This is the first film in which Kobayashi Satomi plays a leading role, as well as being pre-war star Irie Takako’s final work.
