Dreamy Japanese Drama ‘They Say Nothing Stays The Same’ Heads To DVD This February From Film Movement

Film Movement has announced that they will be releasing the Japanese drama They Say Nothing Stays The Same on Digital and DVD on February 15, 2022. The film marks the directorial debut of iconic actor/musician Joe Odagiri. The DVD release will also feature the bonus short “School Radio to Major Tom”. Get details below!

Synopsis: Featuring an array of cameos from Japan’s top stars, THEY SAY NOTHING STAYS THE SAME, the debut directorial feature by actor Joe Odagiri, follows Toichi (Akira Emoto), an aging ferryman in a remote Meiji-era community. His peaceful, cyclical existence is given meaning by the essential role he plays in transporting people, livestock and goods across the water. When news arrives that a bridge is being built upstream, it’s clear that his services will no longer be needed. Meanwhile, his life will be equally transformed by the appearance of a mysterious young woman whom he saves from drowning. Shot by star cinematographer Christopher Doyle, THEY SAY NOTHING STAYS THE SAME is a refreshingly old-fashioned work of classical cinema, its formal qualities mirroring its thematic concern with those fondly-remembered traditions sacrificed in the name of progress.

  • Bonus Short Film — School Radio to Major Tom (Directed by Takuya Chisaka | Japan | Japanese with English subtitles | 10 minutes) — A shy high school student thinks no one listens to the science-fiction radio drama he produces daily until one day he starts to receive recorded responses from a mysterious female student.
