Anime fans who managed to catch his debut Mind Game and the more recent Lu over the Wall (screened at LYFF 2018), will already be familiar with director Masaaki Yuasa’s singular brand of warped imagination. His new film follows Hinako, a college student and keen surfer, who is rescued by firefighter Minato after an apartment fire. They fall in love, but a tragic accident pulls them apart, or it does, until Minato starts appearing in the water around her. A film about finding oneself, with an elemental soulfulness and a real generosity of spirit.
