Perfect Days (Wim Wenders, 2023, DCP, 123 mins)

Wenders’s latest is “a sublime validation of the ordinary, a film replete with grace, harmony, and hope that overwhelms and engulfs you in its humane world” (Namrata Joshi). This current Best International Feature Oscar nominee stars Kōji Yakusho, who won Best Actor at Cannes for his role as a Tokyo toilet cleaner. The Kinks, Otis Redding, Nina Simone, and—of course—Lou Reed grace the soundtrack. In Japanese with English subtitles. DCP courtesy NEON.

“Cinemix” features stand-alone screenings of standout films, presented by the Yale Film Archive and our colleagues from across campus and beyond.
