Some movies captivate me because of the thrill to know, the excitment of actions and scenes, the schooting opulence. Others are more like an old album of photographs, little moments stored away in order to look at them in the future and smile. Laudry falls in the second category, for me.

The pace of the movie and the general feel of it are clear from the very first minutes. Ordinary and yet unique people coming and going, a young lead who does nothing more than observe the world from a very static point of view, never moving too far. His world is made of little things, of routinary chores and familiar faces and places.
When his environement is somehow overturned he takes the new challenge with the calmness and ingenuity of a child.
It's endearing, adorable to watch, heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time.

I watched this movie because Yosuke Kubozuka plays the main role in it. I'm enchanted by this actor, his versatility and ability to make the viewer empathize with his characters, no matter what they do or who they are.
His acting here is so believable it impressed me once more. He managed to create a character who is at the same time sad and sunny.
As I said, the movie is a collection of moments. There is a crying one which felt so much like a punch in my guts I will never forget it.

The music fits the bill. It's not unforgettable, but simple as the movie itself.

If you want to fall in love with a character who is neither hot, nor heroic, nor cool or romantic in the traditional sense of the word, watch this movie.
The re-watch value is high because I will definetely go back to it.

I really LOVE this movie!

I like the slow pace and the quirkiness of it.

I watched this film because of Kubozuka Yosuke (GO, Ping Pong) but it made me a BIG fan of Koyuki.

She is just AWESOME in Laundry and i LOVE every second of screentime of her in this.

It is a really quiet and perhaps strange little film but i watched it several times and never got bored!

HIGHLY recommended! (If you appreciate the little, sometimes hidden things!)
