Redefining Intimacy - Nov 26 to Dec 2

Zero Kazuhiro SODA

Films A to Z

Seishin 0

As part of the Kazuhiro Soda retrospective in 2018, the RIDM screened Mental (2008), the Japanese director’s masterpiece about Dr. Yamamoto’s psychiatric clinic. The doctor is now preparing to retire from his half-century practice, built on empathy and community, to take care of his wife, Yoshiko. As delicately as ever, Soda patiently observes the doctor’s final consultations with his patients, capturing gestures and expressions that reveal the sympathetic and trusting relationship between healer and patient. The film then shifts focus to Yamamoto and his wife, as the couple settle into a harmonious routine for their remaining time together. Overflowing with wisdom and poetry, Seishin 0 is an unforgettable portrait of human goodness and frailty. (Charlotte Selb)
