Considering Cutie and the Boxer concerns itself with not one but two creators, it’s ironic that a lack of expressive flair is what makes their story so bland. First time director Zachary Heinzerling embedded himself in the colourful New York home of Japanese artists Ushio and Noriko Shinohara. In this fly-on-the-wall documentary, he captures their day-to-day struggles and disagreements which have been marketed as dramatic but feel like fairly run-of-the-mill domestic tiffs.

Intriguing as their present lives may be, without enough background to appreciate, for instance, Ushio’s associations with Rauschenberg and Warhol, we can’t gauge the full extent of the couple’s regrets and losses.

A turbulent 40-year marriage, how expats navigate New York, a woman emerging as an artist and what happens when the bohemian life becomes the bohemian senior-citizen life: All of these are woven into this engrossing documentary… The friction between a couple of still-struggling artists sounds rather depressing, but in fact the film is often funny; it shows that love is present in even the couple’s harshest exchanges.
