SWEET BEAN [An] comes to cinemas in the UK & Ireland

Steve-Eureka

Sweet Bean (aka An), the heartbreakingly beautiful film and “ode to the simple joys in life” from director Naomi Kawase (The Mourning Forest, Still the Water), will be released in selected cinemas & available on VOD from 5 August 2016, ahead of its Masters of Cinema release in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 22 August 2016.

Struggling street food vendor Sentaro (Masatoshi Nagase) finds himself confronted with Tokue (Kirin Kiki), an odd but sympathetic elderly lady looking for work. When he reluctantly accepts, it’s not long before Tokue proves to have an extraordinary gift when it comes to making “an” – the sweet red bean paste filling used in his dorayakis – which starts a relationship that is about much more than just street food.

Check below for cinema screenings in your area, we will update this page frequently with listings as they are confirmed.  The film will also be available on demand from iTunes (from 5 August 2016).
