Kuro

A film by Joji Koyama and Tujiko Noriko

SYNOPSIS

Romi, a Japanese woman living in Paris, works in a karaoke bar. At home in the suburbs, she tends to her paraplegic lover Milou. To pass the time she recounts to him a story alluding to a period they once spent together in Japan. Soon, the mystery of a man named Mr. Ono begins to unsettle everything. Weaving together personal history, anecdotes and myths, the story takes a dark turn.

あらすじ

パリ郊外に住む日本人ロミはカラオケバーで働きながら、家では麻痺状態に陥っている恋人ミルーの面倒を見て暮らしている。ロミがミルーにお話を聞かせながら家での時間を過ごしていると、以前彼らが一緒に日本にいた頃の話題が発端となり、そこに登場する小野と呼ばれる男の謎が話をどんどん思わぬ方向に。自身の過去、伝説、奇談などを交えつつ、やがてロミのミルーへの一人語りは恐ろしいような、不思議なような、ただならぬ様相を帯び始める。

“Kuro is a film about our need for narrative to make sense of our lives. We were interested in how stories become a kind of architecture of our understanding of the world, as well as protection from what we fear and do not understand. However much we protect ourselves with stories, the ways in which we construct, use and interpret them are in constant flux. Perhaps our film is also about the ways in which narrative ultimately tries to articulate the unknowable and how in spite of this, the unknowable always returns to haunt us. We wanted to make a film that plays with, and at moments unhinges the mechanisms of storytelling, in order to produce a cinematic experience that allows for space and ambiguity for the audience to explore.”
