YesAsia Editorial Description

Known for films like Kamome Diner and Glasses, Ogigami Naoko knits another warm healing drama in Close-Knit, which premiered in the Panorama sidebar of the 2017 Berlin Film Festival. Starring Ikuta Toma (The Top Secret: Murder in Mind) as a transgender woman, Kiritana Kenta (Outrage Beyond) as her boyfriend, and child actress Kakihara Rinka as the niece they take in, the big-hearted film depicts an alternative family structure with gentle candor.

After getting abandoned by her feckless mother (Mimura) yet again, 11-year-old Tomo (Kakihara Rinka) moves in with her good-natured uncle Makio (Kiritani Kenta), only to find that he is now living with his transgender girlfriend Rinko (Ikuta Toma). Though a bit surprised at first, Tomo soon bonds with Rinko, a soft-spoken caretaker who makes exquisite lunch boxes and showers her with motherly warmth. Though faced with prejudices and challenges, the three build a close-knit makeshift family on their own terms.

This edition comes with a booklet and a bonus DVD of special features, including making-of documentary and Berlin Film Festival travelogue.
