    • Synopsis
    • When a bored college student learns that a long lost aunt has been found dead in a park, he begins piecing together her life to see if it held any value. What he finds is a revelation.
      Talented film director, Tetsuya Nakashima (“Kamikaze Girls”), wields a host of cinematic tools to make Memories of Matsuko a memorably entertaining and emotionally powerful “fairytale tragedy,” weaving together realistic human drama with offbeat comedy and spectacular (Bob Fosse-like) production numbers to tell the heartbreaking story of Matsuko Kawajiri, a starry-eyed woman who spends her entire life searching for a worthy “prince” capable of returning her limitless love. Versatile actress, Miki Nakatani, renders a virtuosic performance in the lead role of Matsuko.
