In a mountain village near Tokyo, the life of the Haruno family follows the whimsical and existential obsessions of each of its members – getting rid of a giant doppelganger, falling in love for the first time, coming out of retirement to return to the world of animation, practising hypnosis – under the eyes of a grandfather whose eccentricities have no limits. A family chronicle with distant ties to Yasujiro Ozu’s cinema in its observation of everyday detail. The Taste of Tea is an exhilarating film in the form of a patchwork open to all kinds of daring. Video clips, animations, pop inserts, references to the manga culture, jibes at J-pop and cosplay slip into the film in sketches that swing between light-heartedness and seriousness, espousing the movement of life itself.
