Here’s the Classic and Core JFF Program

Wrapping up JFF 2015 in each city is Festival highlight 100 Yen Love—an indie film that entertains and breaks hearts in equal measure.

Ichiko (Sakura Ando) is a 32-year-old slacker with few prospects in life. An encounter between Ichiko, the mysterious ‘Banana Man’ and a boxing gym triggers a chain of events that leads to Ichiko’s metamorphosis, and the literal fight to take back her own life.

100 Yen Love is an intriguing tale of an awkward woman, an awkward love and a quest for personal triumph. It is also Japan’s official entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the upcoming 88th Academy Awards®.
