Overview

In a park on a rainy evening, a 19-year-old university student, Fumi, offers an umbrella to a soaking wet 10-year-old girl, Sarasa. Realizing her reluctance to go home, Fumi lets her stay in his place, where she spends the next two months in peace. They take each other's hands and seem to have finally found their place in the world until Fumi is arrested for kidnapping. Fifteen years later, the lonely two are reunited both still suffering from the stigma as the victim and perpetrator of “a pedophile case."

Review

Wandering is director Lee Sang-il's film adaptation of Nagira Yuu's best-selling novel, which won the Japan Booksellers’ Award in 2020. It stars Hirose Suzu and Matsuzaka Tôri. On a rainy day in the park, 19-year-old college student Fumi holds an umbrella over Sarasa, a 10-year-old girl who was reading a book in the rain. When Sarasa is unwilling to return to her aunt's house, Fumi takes her back to his own place and is eventually arrested for kidnapping. Sarasa, who is labeled as a poor victim, and Fumi, who serves time in prison, meet again 15 years later, and they work together to overcome each other's deficiencies in the prejudiced world. Cinematographer Hong Kyung-pyo of Parasite (2019) and The Wailing (2016) also worked on this film, showing the solidarity and admiration between Fumi and Sarasa through the sunlight coming through the curtains and swaying in the wind.
