Gone Wednesday



Kazuma Saito (Tomoya Nakamura) is a young man whose life was changed forever after he was involved in a traffic accident at elementary school. He has developed seven totally distinct personalities named after each day of the week. None of these personalities has any recollection of what the other did, and none can communicate with one another – save via sticky notes and a journal. While one is a fast-living rock band member with a penchant for alcohol, women, and cigarettes, the next is a shy, clean-living young man. Another is a budding sports enthusiast...and so on. The personalities are so different that they have their own shoes, toothbrushes, clothes, and desks. But life gets complicated for all of them when one of their number – Wednesday – suddenly goes missing. Who will fill in for Wednesday? Will the role fall to Tuesday? Can there be a week without a Wednesday? The remaining personalities try to answer these questions and fix the problem before it threatens to consume them all. Tuesday looks into solutions that include an experimental surgery that could put an end to these problems once and for all – but is this risk really worth taking? “Gone Wednesday” is a 2020 Japanese movie that was directed by Kohei Yoshino.
