In this gentle drama of the ordinary, Wim Wenders narrates the story of Hirayama, a Japanese man who appears to find happiness in a simple life as a bathroom cleaner in Tokyo. Beyond his meticulous routine, Hirayama nurtures a passion for music, books, and photographing trees. Through a series of unexpected encounters, details of his past are unveiled, triggering a profoundly poetic and moving reflection on the ability to find beauty in the world around us. Perfect Days premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Best Actor Award, bestowed for Kōji Yakusho's remarkable performance, the Ecumenical Jury Award.
