Koji Yamamura’s Academy Award®-nominated animated short reworks a surreal Rakugo comic monologue concerning a miserly old-timer. Unable to abide waste, he eats the pit of a cherry earlier saved from the trash. In a peculiar turn, the seed begins sprouting out of his head. Hordes of miniature office workers arrive for picnics under the shade of the blossoming cherry tree without much consideration for the man below. Fed up, he yanks the plant from its root. Contentment continues to elude him, however, and a surprisingly psychedelic conclusion envisions his soul’s ultimate unrest.

Thanks to this film, I'm also getting into the rakugo form of storytelling. Once again, I owe my immortal soul to Fandor.

What a waste, is the phrase uttered by a man who can never throw anything away. He finds himself in a maddening situation where a cherry tree begins to grow on his head, and eventually is faced with throwing himself away.

Kind of like Idiots and Angels. This surprises regularly with the extent of the humor. Poor guy. It's a delight to watch this creation.

Jam-packed with the informational overload of modern urban Japan. It's literally on his mind and in his head.

Very well done. Entertaining

Great graphic artistry but the story is just too weird for my taste.

captivating, dark , and too real

remarkable

Stunning animation and very powerful!

fresh and interesting

Kids thought it was really weird - but liked it.
