What to See This Week (12/09/22)

Plan 75 

SET in Japan in the near future, the film tells of a government program, Plan 75, which encourages senior citizens to agree to voluntary euthanasia to remedy the problems of a super-aged society. An elderly woman whose means of survival are vanishing, a pragmatic Plan 75 salesman, and a young Filipino laborer find themselves facing choices of life and death. The winner of a Camera D’Or Special Mention at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival’s Un Certain Regard section, the film is co-written and directed by Chie Hayakawa, and features Filipina actress Stefanie Arianne, Chieko Baisho, and Hayato Isomura. Variety’s Peter Debruge writes, “Plan 75 might have been a risible exercise in emotional manipulation if not for the sensitive tone with which Hayakawa approaches all of her characters. The film’s underlying agenda is hardly subtle, and yet, Hayakawa leaves more than enough room for audiences to disagree — that is, to consider the actual merits of deciding the hour and means of one’s own exit.” Film review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer gives the film a score of 92%, and an audience score of 100%.
