Directed by Takeshi Kitano
Written by Takeshi Kitano

Third movie of the japanese writer-director Takeshi Kitano. A deaf garbage collector happens upon a broken and discarded surfboard.

The discovery plants in him dreams of becoming a surf champion. Encouraged by his also deaf girlfriend, he persists against all odds.

Though trapped in silence, their expression of love is no less profound. A heartrending masterpiece that, as with Kitano's other films (Sonatine, Fireworks), has a sharp eye for human frailties and a love for the courage of the underdog.
