Five interconnected stories from the wild mind of cult manga author Hiroyuki Ohashi (On-gaku: Our Sound) comprise this live-action feature by directors Takayuki Yamada, Naoto Takenaka and Takumi Saitoh.
There’s an old man who feels the need to impart his knowledge to a grown-up granddaughter; a quiet loner seeking self-discovery on his bike and the fisherman he encounters who invites him to a special meal; a school friendship that turns awkward because of an infatuation with an older sibling; a boy and his father who have very different ideas about how to enjoy themselves; and a friendship between two neighbours that revolves around a series of notes. Scripted by Yutaka Kuramochi, 'Zokki' is less an anthology than a series of snapshots of a strange and quirky world.
