Miss Osaka

Daniel Dencik, Denmark, 2020

100 min.DK/FeatureDrama

The film is the story of Ines, a young woman who kills her past while inventing a new future in Japan. The Danish girl visits the night club "Miss Osaka", and while she is trained in the art of being a hostess, we eventually discover what horrible events in the Norwegian wilderness that led Ines all the way to Japan. With a targeted ex-boyfriend following close behind. The film is a compelling, picturesque identity fable about what happens on the paths of love and delusion as identities change, dissolve, and re-create.
