New Life

  • Japan, France / 2005 / 52min / Colour
  • Original Title : Nouvelle Vie
  • Director : Brice Pedroletti


A new wave of Japanese filmmakers has been appearing since the 90ís: they are in their 30ís and 40ís and make movies with extremely limited resources. Their movies reflect a quest for intimacy and understanding, focusing on social and psychological themes, which mirror the confusion and discomfort of a generation that has rejected the old ambitions of getting rich and the blind loyalty to oneís employer and social harmony. With a cinematic touch, this documentary is a window on contemporary Japan.
