KOHINATA Marco [Japan]


Set in a small town in France after World War I, where the shadow of a new war in creeping in, the hard daily lives of boys and girls, including the cheerful boy performer Momo, are depicted in omnibus format. Void of monologues and descriptive narration, a story of children’s friendship and growth is weaved with concise dialog and meticulous descriptive power.
