Hana & Alice small

Newly arrived in small-town suburbia with her divorced mother, middle-school age transfer student Tetsuko Arisugawa (Arisu or ‘Alice’ for short) finds herself the victim of bullying by her classmates and seeks solace through dance. She soon learns of an urban myth about a mysteriously vanished former student called Yuda (Japanese for ‘Judas’) who was allegedly murdered by four of his classmates. Hana, a reclusive girl who lives in a house bedecked with flowers next door, seems to hold the key to the mystery, and together the pair soon embark on a wild and unpredictable series of suburban escapades.

With films such as Fireworks (1993), Love Letter (1995) and Swallowtail Butterfly (1996), Shunji Iwai (b. 1963) emerged as a massively invigorating force in Japanese cinema in the 1990s. This standalone prequel to his 2004 live-action film Hana & Alice is his first animated work, which he wrote, edited and directed. Craftily plotted, witty and beautifully realised, it is a great experience for people who think they don’t like anime, as well as for those who know they do.

Tickets for this film (which includes With Time) should be purchased on the Regent Street Cinema website here. Special price for double bills (which includes Drama and Seoul Searching) also available.
