Kyoto Elegy by Kiki Sugino / Japan / 94 min / 2014 / M18 (Consumer Advice: Sexual Scenes)
Set after the Fukushima disaster, Kyoto Elegy tells the story of Watanabe, a shy and awkward lay student, and his relationships with three women who become involved with him at different points of his life.

Through its depictions of the vastly different connections he has with these women, the film critiques Japanese social conventions while providing insight into the psyches of younger Japanese.
