An absorbing slice-of-life drama led by a remarkable Kôji Yakusho performance, Perfect Days adds a quietly soaring gem to director/co-writer Wim Wenders’ estimable filmography.

Hirayama seems utterly content with his simple life as a cleaner of toilets in Tokyo.

Outside of his very structured everyday routine he enjoys his passion for music and for books. And he loves trees and takes photos of them. 

A series of unexpected encounters gradually reveal more of his past. 

A deeply moving and poetic reflection on finding beauty in the everyday world around us.
