Wim Wenders latest release and Cannes sensation.

Hirayama cleans public toilets in Tokyo, lives his life in simplicity and daily tranquility. Some encounters also lead him to reflect on himself. He seems content with his simple life. He follows a structured everyday life and dedicates his free time to cherished music on cassette tapes, books, and taking photos of trees. More of his past is gradually revealed through a series of unexpected encounters.

"With its gentle rhythms, leisurely pacing and quiet profundity, this Tokyo toilet story has an obvious debt to the work of Yasujirō Ozu" - The Guardian

"A humble but enriching film... a loving portrait, profound in its serenity, but not without humour" - Empire
