Blind Love

Daisuke Gotô, 2006, 64 mins

AKA Lidashi Kanete

In this Cyrano-De-Bergerac-esque comedy of errors, a blind girl falls in love with a ventriloquist by merely being able to hear his voice. However, when she meets him, she mistakes his friend for the ventriloquist. She starts dating the friend without realising it’s the wrong man and not the man she fell for.

This bittersweet Japanese film won lots of international praise for its bold performances. You can also watch Mourning Wife, from Daisuke Gotô HERE
