Product Description

The Acclaimed Zen Comedy by Award-winning Director Doris Dorrie


A brilliant comedy about self discovery. Washington Post

Snappy, well-scripted comedy. Variety

A warm, closely observed satire of lived life, and it is a charmer. SF Chronicle


Brothers Uwe and Gustav are comfortable middle class family men in modern Munich. An unexpected divorce and a long planned retreat suddenly collide, and they're on their own, lost in Tokyo. Finally arriving at a Zen monastery, can they find their way?


Filmed on location at Sojiji Monastery, Monzen, Japan

About the Director
