Third Window Films Releases “Zokki” on Blu-ray on April 25, 2022

Third Window Films will release anthology comedy “Zokki” on April 25th.

This film is based on a manga by Hiroyuki Ohashi, the creator of On-Gaku, the hit animated film. The manga contains many stories with humorous and pointed observations on life and these were brought to the screen by three top actors working as directors on each of the segments: Naoto Takenaka, Takayuki Yamada, Takumi Saitoh. Perhaps, due to to their star power, they have assembled a brilliant cast.

Don’t go in expecting too many laugh-out-loud moments, it’s a quiet dry comedy and very poignant in parts. It also has one VERY scary sequence that leans into the tragic then the comic. It’s very much worth watching it.

Details on the Blu-ray release follow below:
