July film: "Fortune Favors Lady Nikuko"
(2021, 97min. Rating: M, Director:Ayumu Watanabe, Producer: Sanma Akashiya)

“Fortune Favors Lady Nikuko” is the heartwarming and moving comedy drama of an unconventional family – a not-so-ordinary mother-and-daughter pair who live their lives to the fullest.
Easy-going, cheerful, passionate and always ready to eat something delicious, mother Nikuko falls hard for the bad guys. Her happy motto: “Ordinary is best of all!”

Naturally Nikuko’s loud and bold spirit embarrasses 11-year-old Kikuko, her daughter on the verge of puberty. With nothing in common except living together on a boat at the port, a miracle occurs when their secret is revealed.

Feature length animated film from STUDIO4℃, the creator of “Poupelle of Chimney Town”, “Children of the Sea”, “Tekkonkinkreet” and “Animatrix” .
