A Film by Nobuteru Uchida

Starring Kiki Sugino, Yûki Shinohara, Takeshi Yamamoto

The catastrophic earthquake and resulting tsunami off the coast of Japan in March 2011, now referred to as “3.11,” for obvious reasons has quickly become a social and creative touchstone, and the latest filmmaker to tackle the subject is Uchida Nobuteru, best known to now for his romantic drama Love Addiction. Using a mobile, fluid handheld camera and keeping the story intimately focused on two women in one Tokyo neighborhood, Uchida’s Odayaka addresses the internal devastation wrought by the quake and crafts a largely moving, if occasionally hysterical, picture of the psychological impact of the tragedy.

"An intimate portrait of life immediately after Japan’s devastating tsunami is served well by its avoidance of the sensational. "

--Elizabeth Kerr, Hollywood Reporter
