Small, Slow but Steady

Small, Slow But Steady (Keiko, Me Wo Sumasete), dir. Shô Miyake, Japan, France 2022, 100 min., Japanese with English subtitles, 12A.

Keiko surprises everyone when she overcomes adversity to win her first two boxing fights. But when an unexpected incident threatens the closure of her gym, she is pushed further than she thought possible. A powerful adaptation of Keiko Ogasawara's memoir Makenaide!, Shô Miyake’s Small, Slow But Steady is an exquisitely crafted and profoundly moving portrait.

All films are ad-free and 18+ unless otherwise stated, and start with a 10 min. curated selection of trailers.
