We're big fans of the film Fine, Totally Fine here at Twistedwing, so news of a new film from director Yosuke Fujita is always welcome. What we have here is a Third Window Films production alongside Tucker Films in Italy, Rapid Eye Movies in Germany and Joint Entertainment in Taiwan. The first of its kind in fact. Fuku-chan also took away top honours for Best Actress at the Fantasia Film Festival. The film is available to buy on DVD from July 13, 2015.

Synopsis: 32-year-old Tatsuo Fukuda, nickname “Fuku-chan” (Miyuki Oshima), is a painter who lives in a run-down apartment complex called Fukufuku Flats. He spends his days working up a sweat painting buildings, his nights mediating disputes between the other denizens of Fukufuku Flats, and his days off flying handmade kites down by the riverside.

One day, an unfamiliar woman turns up at Fukufuku Flats. It is Chiho, his first love from his junior high school days who he has not seen for around 20 years, and she has come to apologize for something that happened in their past. As Fuku-chan allows himself to get caught up in Chiho's quest to become a photographer, he begins to fall in love all over again with this woman who was responsible for the traumatising incident that led to his fear of women.
