In a restless country where it’s common to work overtime, a bit of the slow life is needed now and then, even if it’s via the silver screen.

There have been a lot of films so far this year that focus on the countryside, painting it with nostalgia and a tinge of melancholy like in “Kuchibiru ni Uta wo” (“Have a Song on the Lips”), “Umimachi Diary” (“Seaside Town Diary”) and “Saihate nite: Yasashii Kaori to Machinagara” (“The Furthest End Awaits”).

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
