This contemplative and funny film explores the later days in the life of Morikazu Kumagai (Tsutomu Yamazaki), a profound recluse who remained in his home for over thirty years, and one of Japan’s most celebrated 20th-century artists. With exceptional and delicate performances by Yamazaki and Kirin Kiki (in one of her final roles as Hideko Kumagai), Mori, The Artist’s Habitat captures the delicate and fleeting moments in the artist’s garden and home.
