The latest film from Kohei Oguri, director of Muddy River (Silver Prize -12th Moscow International Film Festival) and The ting of Death (Grand Prize of the Jury, 43rd Cannes Film Festival)

Paris in the early 1920s: the Japanese artist Tsuguharu Foujita is the darling of the capital. His very personal style, of naked women in delicate whites, surprises the Montparnasse art scene. In this relationships with many Parisiennes, and his friendships with Van Dongen, Kisling, Picasso, Modigliani and others, he lives a frenzied life in Paris. At the outbreak of WWII Foujita is back in his home country, Japan. His life and beliefs shaken by the war, he lives modestly in Aomori, a small town in Northern Japan, with his new Japanese wife, Kimiyo. Seeking refuge in the countryside, Foujita discovers a Japan he never knew.
