Natsu no Utage

Hiroshi Toda

Japan / 2008 / 72'

Hirata and Kageyama have been longstanding friends since their childhood. Now in their old age they have retired from their jobs and decide to take a trip together, leaving all worries behind. During their journey they take their time to relax, have a good chat or rest. They talk about the old days, just joking around and laughing. However, they only have one problem: the food is poor as they have to camp out along the way and the meals are definitely not their best. The situation seems to change dramatically when they find a restaurant in a remote place. Of course they did not know at that time that this was just the beginning of a bizarre and unforgettable experience that would unfold around them.
