    Synopsis OKI’S MOVIE is comprised of 4 short films: A DAY UNDER A SPELL, KING OF KISSES, AFTER THE HEAVY SNOW and OKI’S MOVIE. Three main characters appear in all of the four shorts, having the different but overlapping roles in each of them. The last one, OKI’S MOVIE is a story of a film student Oki who made a film about two men she has dated; one young and the other much older. She made a cinematographic construction of her experiences of coming to Acha Mountain with each man with a year apart. She juxtaposes her experiences with each man by paring them according to places on the mountain: the parking lot, the entrance, a small pavilion, the public toilet, the wooden bridge, and halfway up the mountain. We see the differences and similarities of the two experiences in details. And by this composition, we may feel that we are seeing an overall picture of Oki’s relationships with the two men.
