Air doll / Kûki Ningyô (Japan, 2009)

Air Doll is a rather weird story about an air doll which is becoming a human being. In a short period she encounters many different emotions. In fact, this is a story about loneliness, maybe not so special if you may have expected from brilliant Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda, but still a joy to watch. The beautiful scenes of loneliness gently shows the individualistic Japanese society and how difficult it is to still recognize all emotions which are out there.
