Manic Monday takes on a whole new meaning!

Working overnight with colleagues, a head injury from a traffic accident, constant sleepiness on the job and a bird slamming itself into the office window… on top of a pressing deadline at her advertising job, Yoshikawa is having the worst week ever. As if her headache wasn’t bad enough, her coworkers Endо̄ and Murata are going mad and claim the entire office is stuck in a time loop… but after a few rounds of reliving the same mundane Monday, Yoshikawa soon realises they’re telling the truth. Now the teammates must work together, enlighten their oblivious colleagues and find a way to end this endless Monday! 

MONDAYS: See you “this” week! is the second film by director Ryо̄ Takebayashi, who shot to recognition with his teen film Bookmark 14 (2021). With a universally relatable corporate culture setting and themes of career struggles, this Groundhog Day-esque comedy is a hilarious yet heartwarming pick-me-up after a long day.
