The Bicycle Thief Was Bad *

Director: Tadakazu Takahashi
Japan | 2006 | 35mm | 104 Min. | OmeU | International Premiere

Independent minimalistic filmmaking at its best.

Steel-worker Saito Tetsuo, driven by an unexplained anxiety, steals bike after bike to move away from his hometown to Tokyo. Trough snow-storms and empty landscapes, the breathtaking photography allows us to look deep into the mindscape of a man searching for an answer - although the question itself is never quite articulated.
