YesAsia Editorial Description

Award-winning director Nishikawa Miwa returns with the acclaimed human drama Under the Open Sky, her first film since 2016's The Long Excuse. Premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, the film features an enormous performance by Yakusho Koji as an ex-convict struggling to find his place in a world that's not wired to accept people like him. Adapted from the Naoki Prize-winning novel Mibuncho by Saki Ryuzo, Under the Open Sky offers a nuanced and empathetic study of both the protagonist and Japanese society.

After serving a 13-year sentence for murder, middle-aged ex-yakuza Mikami Masao (Yakusho Koji) is released from prison one winter's day. He takes a bus to Tokyo, where he's greeted by his lawyer (Hashizume Isao) and wife (Kaji Meiko). Mikami wants to start life anew outside prison, but hits roadblocks and red tape everywhere. A TV director (Nagasawa Masami) and producer (Nakano Taiga) approach him in hopes of turning his story into a documentary program.

This edition includes a bonus DVD with cast and staff interviews,
