100 Yen Love

Masaharu Take, 2014 (114m)

100 Yen Love

Lazy Ichiko lives at home above her family’s takeaway restaurant, rarely motivated to leave the house at all. A family dispute forces her to eventually leave home and find her own place. She takes a night shift at the local ‘100 Yen’ convenience store to pay her rent. Meanwhile, she finds herself increasingly fascinated by Yuji, an older man she spots training at a nearby boxing gym. As she begins an awkward friendship with Yuji, a violent encounter with a sleazy co-worker provokes Ichiko to take up boxing herself. The superb 100 Yen Love was Japan’s latest submission for the Oscar’s Best Foreign Language Film category.
