Miwa NISHIKAWA 西川美和

ディア・ドクター

Nippon Cinema   ª 

In a small town in Japan the only doctor vanishes all of a sudden. He was regarded as somewhat of a miracle healer by the village people, because they know that issuing prescriptions is not the only thing that makes a good doctor. Director NISHIKAWA spins a story light as a feather around the very profound question: What is a good decision regarding life and death?
