A Friendship in Tow/Toe

Directed by Atsushi Kuwayama
Portugal, 2017

One night in Lisbon, a Japanese man helps an elderly Portuguese woman on crutches ascend a massive set of stairs. Their amusing encounter and surprising connection, despite major language barriers, rivals any Richard Linklater romance or Aaron Sorkin walk-and-talk for humour and admission.
