Melancholic

MA15+

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Melancholic at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

Despite having a degree from a prestigious university, Kazuhiko is unemployed and living with his parents with no plans for the future. Having no work experience and a lacklustre attitude to life, the strange, awkward and socially inept Kazuhiko eventually finds a job scrubbing tiles at the local bathhouse. While the job makes his days rosier (and his wallet fuller), interactions between his boss and coworker make him suspicious about his workplace outside of hours. One night, he witnesses a yakuza execution in the bathhouse. What begins as a film about a lonely ill-fitting man drifting along the outskirts of society quickly develops a cross-genre edginess that is viscerally thrilling, darkly funny, and heartwarming.
