Joy of Man's Desiring

Hitono Nozomino Yorokobiyo

Directed by Masakazu Sugita
Japan, 2013


A major earthquake has hit Japan destroying more than just houses. The dead are buried and the survivors are left among the ruins. Shot in tranquil images and using very little dialogue, the film tells the story of two siblings.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
