MILK

Feature Film, TOKYO/ NEW YORK / VIENNA 1998 102 min

What happens when GREEN TEA meets MILK? Find out as four young urban nomads find themselves in TOKYO— a city spinning with pop culture and ancient traditions. Follow a quirky Austrian artist drawn to the offbeat Japanese woman he met at NEW YORK’s Chelsea Hotel and a mysterious monument he discovers in Tokyo. The young Japanese woman finds freedom in the role of an elevator girl, where her many choices are reduced to “up” and “down”. A radio english teacher from New York who falls in love with a rogue salaryman. Spirits live, CULTURES CLASH and twains meet in this hip, atmospheric, and truly original film.
