The Taste of Tea (blu ray)

Regular price €15,95

STREAM - The Taste of Tea on Terravision - UK & Eire residents only

Starring Tadanobu Asano (ICHI THE KILLER, GEMINI).

Filmmaker Katsuhito Ishii takes a break from the post-Tarantino excess of such highly-stylized outings as Shark Skin Man and Peach Hip Girl for this low-key look at an eccentric family residing in a quiet countryside town just north of Tokyo.

The Haruno family is a five-piece clan living the simple life in Japan. The summer sun shining gently down, this quiet quintet is transformed into a six-piece when urban-dwelling uncle Ayano (Tadanobu Asano), a successful music producer, arrives to visit his family and confront his feelings for the ex-girlfriend who married another man after Ayano moved to the city.

As the lazy days pass by, each member of the family is followed in a series of episodic vignettes.
