Based on the celebrated manga series “Shin’ya Shokudo” by Yaro Abe and previously adapted into the critically-acclaimed TV series in Japan, Korea and China, the cinematic version of Midnight Diner debuts on Blu-ray on August 17!

In this comedy-drama from China, a small, counter-only restaurant, open daily from midnight to 7, is lovingly helmed by its mysterious owner and chef, a quiet enigma who provides no menu yet can make any dish the customer desires. Year after year, people flock from far and wide to the mysterious Midnight Diner to share their stories, savor delicious home cooking, and finally, to leave refreshed, feeling equally full and ready for their next adventure.

Tony Leung Ka-Fai (Once Upon a Time in Hong Kong) makes his directorial debut and plays the leading role of a man who makes a set of special food for each guest who visits the restaurant and listens everyone’s story.

The unrated film also stars Deng Chao (Shadow) and Eddie Peng (Operation Mekong).
