Right Place is a Japanese short film from 2005 that was written and directed by Kosai Sekine.
I chose to present this short film to the group and I will later post some short film conventions using examples from other short films I’ve seen.
The narrative focuses on a lonely man, seemingly unable to find his way in life until the end of the short. The main character suffers from OCD and ends up working in a bonesetter after being fired from his job at a small convenience store. The shots used are mostly close ups to show emotion and this allows us to see how the protagonist is feeling with minimal dialogue. The first piece of dialogue occurs just after he is fired, about 4/5 through the short.
It’s an interesting short with the message of “everyone has a right place”, it’s just about finding it.
