A darkly comic mystery meets absurdist satire of Japanese bureaucracy.
Kafka’s novel is perhaps more valid today than it ever was. In the so-called “post-truth” age the story of a man who wakes to find himself under arrest for an unspecified crime has a new resonance. The film preserves Kafka’s more universal existential themes, whilst also satirizing Japanese bureaucracy and political drift to the right.

The film stars in Tsutomu Niwa, who has worked with Williams before on two films and a raft of outstanding new talent, as well as well known faces, such as Toru Shinagawa and Choei Takahashi. Kabuki actor, Yajuro Bando makes a guest appearance in his first film role for 11 years.
