Intimacies

2012 / 255min / DCP

DIRECTOR: RYûSUKE HAMAGUCHI

CAST: REI HIRANO, RYO SATO, MIKIO TAYAMA

With its impressive runtime and acting school setting, Intimacies may seem like a dry run of sorts for Happy Hour, but it’s very much its own film, utilizing an original triptych structure that takes us through the stages of rehearsal and performance, and then beyond. As with the trust-building New Age-y classroom scenes in Happy Hour or the dance rehearsals in Touching the Skin of Eeriness, Hamaguchi proves fascinated with the journey from rough draft to completion, and the entangling of personal lives that occurs in the process.

Screening as a part of the Ryūsuke Hamaguchi series, in conjunction with the release of his latest film ASAKO I & II.
