Chihiro AMANO 天野千尋
Nippon Visions ½
Novelist Maki not only suffers from a lack of ideas but is also tormented by her new neighbor Miwako, who noisily beats her futons, even late at night. However, the ensuing quarrel gives Maki her much-needed inspiration to write a successful serialized novel about her new character “Mrs. Noisy”. But as it becomes apparent to the public who she is modelled on, the situation escalates. Both humorous and insightful, MRS. NOISY tells of all the emotional baggage that people have to carry and pleads for more open-mindedness in our daily encounters.
Chihiro AMANO was born in Aichi Prefecture in 1982. After working at an office for five years, she turned to film and directed several short films that were screened at PIA Film Festival and at Yubari International Fantastic Film Festival, among others. Her feature film debut was the manga adaptation NO TOUCHING AT ALL (2014). MRS. NOISY (2019 / NC ’20) premiered at the 2019 edition of the Japanese Cinema Splash section at Tokyo International Film Festival.
