Spaghetti Code Love

スパゲティコード・ラブ

Director MARUYAMA Takeshi

Cast KURA Yuki, MIURA Toko, SHIMIZU Hiroya

UK Premiere, 2021, 96 min, English Subtitles

Just as the technological phrase ‘spaghetti code’ refers to the state of something unstructured and difficult to maintain, the focus of this modern tale of fragile young lives under the pressures of ambition, love, and general existence, weaves in and out of the perspectives of its multiple protagonists. Shingo (SHIMIZU Hiroya) has garnered mass popularity on Facebook but has no real friends. Cocoro (MIURA Toko), a former aspiring musician, spends much of her time with friends whom she doesn’t actually like. After losing her love, Momoko (SATOU Mutsumi) becomes addicted to telephone fortune telling…

Skilfully tracing the lives of thirteen flawed individuals, this film by first-time feature director, MARUYAMA Takeshi, is a sumptuous feast for the eyes, highly praised by critics and audiences alike.
