Kimono

Genre:Drama
Release Date:January 1, 2002
Running time:28 minutes
Cast:Miho Nikaido, Valerie Celis, Ling, Shen Yun
Director:Hal Hartley

Description: Adding to his list of less-than-feature-length experimental films, director Hal Hartley offers up this mildly erotic, non-narrative fantasy starring his wife, Miho Nikaido. Presumably abandoned by her husband-to-be after an argument, Nikaido's nameless character wanders through a lush forest in her wedding gown, sullying herself in the dirt, tree branches, and rivers of the landscape. As the ornate clothing eventually tears away from her body, she observes two nymphs spying on her; she comes upon a desolate cabin where, under the supervision of the nymphs, she cleans herself and re-dresses in the loose robe of the film's title. Kimono was first shown at the 2000 Toronto International Film Fest.~ Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide
