The Match Factory To Handle Wim Wenders Tokyo-Set Cannes Competition Entry Perfect Days, Film Details & First-Look Revealed

EXCLUSIVE: The Match Factory will be handling world sales on Wim Wenders’ Japan-set Cannes Competition entry Perfect Days.

The film reunites three-time Oscar nominee Wenders (Wings Of Desire, Buena Vista Social Club) with Cannes, where he has debuted 12 movies and previously won the Palme d’Or for Paris, Texas.

The official synopsis reads: “Hirayama seems utterly content with his simple life as a cleaner of toilets in Tokyo. Outside of his very structured everyday routine he enjoys his passion for music and for books. And he loves trees and takes photos of them. A series of unexpected encounters gradually reveal more of his past.” Above is a first look image of the film.

Michael Weber, Managing Director of The Match Factory, said: “To work with Wim Wenders is a dream come true. When I watched Perfect Days for the first time, I was blown away by the beauty of the story, the characters and the attention to each detail. I can’t wait for its grand opening in Cannes next month.”

The Match Factory has a company-record four films in Competition this year. Perfect Days will play along with Fallen Leaves by Aki Kaurismäki, La Chimera by Alice Rohrwacher and Kidnapped by Marco Bellocchio.

Wenders will also be in Cannes with a Special Screening of documentary The Noises Of Time, a portrait of German artist Anselm Kiefer.
