Japanese filmmaker Hiroshi Okuyama snapped up one of the biggest financial prizes in world cinema at San Sebastian for this first feature. The quirky, offbeat and deadpan Jesus is a whole new take on the character of Christ, presented here in a miniature form as the new friend of Yura, a shy and quiet little boy. Yura is struggling to fit in at his new school, a Christian place of learning where his classmates are avid massgoers.
Whimsical and wafer thin, Hiroshi Okuyama has fashioned a sweet fable about a lonely boy and his imaginary friend.Gráinne Humphreys, Festival Director
