A rare Japan-China co-production, Complicity marks a deeply moving feature debut from director Kei Chikaura. Desperate for a better life, Chinese immigrant Chen Liang (Lu Yulai) is now living illegally in Japan. His phone and fake ID cost him a fortune but when he receives a call and offer of employment intended for someone else, his new life begins in a soba restaurant as the apprentice to an elderly chef (played by Tatsuya Fuji from In the Realm of the Senses). A rare feeling of achievement and belonging is built on a deception that cannot remain a secret forever in this moving tale.

Complicity is rich in poetic representations of Japanese food culture and rural life
