    A rites-of-passage tale of Osaka life
    Certificate: 15
    Running Time: 93 mins

    Release Date:

    Including biographical elements, `Nostalgia` centres on the home and school life of a young boy whose family mix the violent and dysfunctional with the comic and lovable. Though containing elements of the sudden and shocking brutality that many associate with this director, `Nostalgia` is more concerned with a child`s moment of leaving the internalized world of fantasy, and passing on eagerly to the next stage of life. A wonderful, touching, startling vision that is uniquely that of Takashi Miike.

    The third film of the `Kishiwada Shonen Gurentai` (Boys Be Ambitious) series of rites-of-passage tales from Osaka life.
