A Scene at the Sea


Cast: , ,

A deaf garbage collector happens upon a broken and discarded surfboard. The discovery plants in him dreams of becoming a surf champion. Encouraged by his also deaf girlfriend, he persists against all odds. Though trapped in silence, their expression of love is no less profound. A heartrending masterpiece that, as with Kitano’s other films (Sonatine), (Fireworks), has a sharp eye for human frailties and a love for the courage of the underdog.
