Press Play to start
At the 17th edition of Five Flavors, as last year, there is a system of booking seats at cinema screenings for accreditation and pass holders. It is important to us that we take care not to overcrowd the rooms and avoid queues at the entrance.
Only a reservation guarantees you a seat at a screening!
The reservation system is very simple and is based on similar principles as buying tickets for individual screenings - just login to your account, visit the page of the selected film and click "book". Detailed information can be found below.
Please make reservations only for the screenings you wish to attend. Reservations can be cancelled, even at the last minute - please remember this and always cancel your reservation if you cancel your screening - this will allow other viewers to use the available space.
Reservations will be possible from Tuesday, 14 November from 12:00 p.m. for all the festival's films.
Reservation of seats
for pass and accreditation holders
Tuesday, November 14, 12:00 pm
If you decide to attend a screening at the last minute or for any other reason you do not book in advance, and there are seats available in the auditorium, your booking will be made "automatically" at the entrance to the auditorium after scanning your pass.
For most of the screenings there will be free seats before the show itself. However, please pay special attention to the screenings of those films that we only show in the cinema - we expect the highest attendance at these screenings.
You can use an electronic pass by presenting it to ticket takers on your phone screen.
Yoriko's life seems to be very well-organized. Her days are filled with meeting the members of a religious sect, praying at her home altar, and grooming the Zen stone garden which replaced the flowerbeds her husband cared for before he disappeared from her life without a word. His sudden return disrupts the routine and the skin-deep harmony of Yoriko's existence, cutting through it like ripples troubling a calm surface of water.
The new film by the Five Flavours favorite, Naoko Ogigami, is a treatise about finding the connection with the surrounding world. The director creates a comedy drama full of subversive humor, filled with both old resentments and piercing observations on the not-so-sugar-sweet reality. In "Ripples" Ogigami once again portraits an outcast heroine conflicted with her surroundings, who still manages to enchant us with her uniqueness. At the same time, the film opens a new chapter in the director's career, whose works are enriched with in-depth psychological reflection and ruthless irony – her outlook on relationships has never been this bitter.
Born in 1972 in Chiba prefecture. In 1994, she left for the US to study directing at the USC. Her films, filled with sweetness and melancholy, made in a characteristic visual style, are extremely popular and are often screened at international festivals. Naoko Ogigami was the guest of the 11th Five Flavours in 2017.
