A perfect song that hits at just the right moment, the play of sunlight through leaves, a fleeting moment of human connection in a vast metropolis: the wonders of everyday life come into breathtaking focus in this profoundly moving film by Wim Wenders. In a radiant, Cannes-award-winning performance of few words but extraordinary expressiveness, Koji Yakusho plays a public-toilet cleaner in Tokyo whose rich inner world is gradually revealed through his small exchanges with those around him and with the city itself. Channeling his idol Yasujiro Ozu, Wenders crafts a serenely minimalist ode to the miracle that is the here and now.

This is the loveliest movie and I am SOOO happy it is getting a 4K release (too many new films I like have only Blu-ray releases on disc).

Plus it has excellent performances.
So understated. A real gem of a movie - and Wenders made TWO staggeringly great films last year!

I went to see the Scandinavian theatrical premiere at Ingmar Bergman's favourite cinema, the Grand Stockholm. No better place to see something like Perfect Days.

I just enlarged the photo of the lobby. Are you sure that's Garbo on the poster second from the right?? It doesn't look like her. It's a beautiful theater, though.

Absolutely. Her name is there in faded gold lettering, on the top. The intarsia, by the artist Gunnar Torhamn, is from 1933, when the theatre was built. He symbolised four continents through depictions of famous actresses from the 1930s. From the left: Joan Crawford for America, Anna May Wong for Asia, Greta Garbo for Europe and a, scantily clad, Josephine Baker to represent Africa.

Well, I stand corrected. I believe you if you say it's Greta Garbo, but I think she looks more like actress Evelyn Keyes when I enlarge the photo with my fingers. And I've certainly never seen Garbo wear a costume like that!
