ORA, ORA BE GOIN’ ALONE | おらおらでひとりいぐも

Momoko (Yuko Tanaka) is a 75-year-old widow living alone in the suburbs of Tokyo. Her children are grown and she has been left to her own devices with a lifetime of memories. Arriving in Tokyo from her rural hometown 55 years ago, Momoko expected to live out her days with her loving husband. Though life is not that simple, and after his sudden death she is left on her own. She has made the most of it, enjoying her days at the library reading about the history of the earth, drinking tea and cooking herself delicious meals. But one day out of the blue a boisterous group of comedic misfits suddenly appear in her empty home. As her past and present begin to merge and this cast of possibly imagined characters join her daily routine, she must decide whether to embrace this new inner world.

Featuring an all-star cast including Yu Aoi and Gaku Hamada, the latest from director Shuichi Okita (THE WOODSMAN AND THE RAIN) is one of his most inventive and heartfelt yet. Based on the novel of the same title by Japanese writer Chisako Wakatake, who was awarded two of Japan’s most prestigious literary prizes.
